Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: sitecopy: Multiple vulnerabilities in included libneon (GLSA 200406-03)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 05, 2004
Updated: August 15, 2004
Bug(s): #51585
ID: 200406-03

Synopsis


sitecopy includes a vulnerable version of the neon library.


Background


sitecopy easily maintains remote websites. It makes it simple to keep a
remote site synchronized with the local site with one command.


Affected Packages

Package: net-misc/sitecopy
Vulnerable: <= 0.13.4-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.13.4-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


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 sitecopy 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
sitecopy.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version of sitecopy.


Resolution


All sitecopy users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=net-misc/sitecopy-0.13.4-r2"
    # emerge ">=net-misc/sitecopy-0.13.4-r2"
