112486 : RHSA-2004-157: Cadaver

Risk 3 : Red Hat Local Checks

An updated cadaver package that fixes a vulnerability in neon exploitable by a malicious DAV server is now available.

cadaver is a command-line WebDAV client that uses inbuilt code from neon, an HTTP and WebDAV client library.

Versions of the neon client library up to and including 0.24.4 have been found to contain a number of format string bugs. An attacker 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 CAN-2004-0179 to this issue.

Users of cadaver are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a patch correcting this issue.
