|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: tla: Multiple vulnerabilities in included libneon (GLSA 200405-25)
Date: May 30, 2004
Updated: June 02, 2004
tla includes a vulnerable version of the neon library.
GNU Arch (tla) is a revision control system suited for widely distributed
Vulnerable: <= 1.2-r1
Vulnerable: = 1.2.1_pre1
Unaffected: >= 1.2-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures
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.
When connected to a malicious WebDAV server, these vulnerabilities could
allow execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running tla.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All users of tla should upgrade to the latest stable version:
|# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=dev-util/tla-1.2-r2"
# emerge ">=dev-util/tla-1.2-r2"
