Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: tla: Multiple vulnerabilities in included libneon (GLSA 200405-25)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 30, 2004
Updated: June 02, 2004
Bug(s): #51586
ID: 200405-25

Synopsis


tla includes a vulnerable version of the neon library.


Background


GNU Arch (tla) is a revision control system suited for widely distributed
development.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-util/tla
Vulnerable: <= 1.2-r1
Vulnerable: = 1.2.1_pre1
Unaffected: >= 1.2-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 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.


Resolution


All users of tla should upgrade to the latest stable version:
Code:
# emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=dev-util/tla-1.2-r2"
    # emerge ">=dev-util/tla-1.2-r2"
