Synopsis
========

A vulnerability potentially allowing remote execution of arbitrary code
has been discovered in the neon library.

Background
==========

neon provides an HTTP and WebDAV client library.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-misc/neon <= 0.24.5 >= 0.24.6

Description
===========

Stefan Esser discovered a vulnerability in the code of the neon library
: if a malicious date string is passed to the ne_rfc1036_parse()
function, it can trigger a string overflow into static heap variables.

Impact
======

Depending on the application linked against libneon and when connected
to a malicious WebDAV server, this vulnerability could allow execution
of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running that application.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are advised to
upgrade to the latest available version of neon.

Resolution
==========

All users of neon should upgrade to the latest stable version:

# emerge sync

# emerge -pv ">=net-misc/neon-0.24.6"
# emerge ">=net-misc/neon-0.24.6"
