Debian Security Advisory DSA 507-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze May 19th, 2004 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : cadaver Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2004-0398

Stefan Esser discovered a problem in neon, an HTTP and WebDAV client library, which is also present in cadaver, a command-line client for WebDAV server. User input is copied into variables not large enough for all cases. This can lead to an overflow of a static heap variable.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.18.0-1woody3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.22.1-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your cadaver package.
