Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2008-08-15 14:26:07 UTC
A NULL pointer deference in the Digest authentication support in neon 
versions 0.28.0 through 0.28.2 inclusive allows a malicious server to 
crash a client application, resulting in possible denial of service.


0.26 seems unaffected, CVE is requested on oss-security.

Client crashes are not subject to Vulnerability Treatment Policy, but I'll bite that subversion might be used in automated setups.

net-misc/neon-0.28.3 was released on 2008-08-20. It fixes CVE-2008-3746.
Comment 3 Benedikt Böhm (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-29 12:07:47 UTC
0.28.3 in cvs, 0.26.4 does not seem to be affected
