MDKSA-2004:049: libneon Vulnerability Scan


Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the libneon package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:049 (libneon).


It was discovered that in portions of neon, sscanf() is used in an unsafe
manner. This will result in an overflow of a static heap variable.
The updated packages provide a patched libneon to correct these problems.
