sitecopy includes a vulnerable version of the neon library.
|Package||net-misc/sitecopy on all architectures|
|Affected versions||<= 0.13.4-r1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.13.4-r2|
sitecopy easily maintains remote websites. It makes it simple to keep a remote site synchronized with the local site with one command.
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.
When connected to a malicious WebDAV server, these vulnerabilities could allow execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running sitecopy.
There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest available version of sitecopy.
All sitecopy users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv ">=net-misc/sitecopy-0.13.4-r2" # emerge ">=net-misc/sitecopy-0.13.4-r2"
