High Nessus Plugin ID 38015


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Stefan Esser reports :

A vulnerability within a libneon date parsing function could cause a heap overflow which could lead to remote code execution, depending on the application using libneon.

The vulnerability is in the function ne_rfc1036_parse, which is in turn used by the function ne_httpdate_parse. Applications using either of these neon functions may be vulnerable.
