RHSA-2004-191: cadaver Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the cadaver packages
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
An updated cadaver package is now available that fixes a vulnerability in
neon which could be exploitable by a malicious DAV server.
cadaver is a command-line WebDAV client that uses inbuilt code from neon,
an HTTP and WebDAV client library.
Stefan Esser discovered a flaw in the neon library which allows a heap
buffer overflow in a date parsing routine. A possible hacker could create
a malicious WebDAV server in such a way as to allow arbitrary code
execution on the client should a user connect to it using cadaver. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2004-0398 to this issue.
Users of cadaver are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a patch correcting this issue.
This issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
