Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200405-25 (tla: Multiple vulnerabilities in included libneon)

Multiple format string vulnerabilities and a heap overflow vulnerability     were discovered in the code of the neon library (GLSA 200405-01 and     200405-13). Current versions of the tla package include their own version     of this library.

Impact :

When connected to a malicious WebDAV server, these vulnerabilities could     allow execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running tla.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
