neon date parsing vulnerability


Stefan Esser reports:

A vulnerability within a libneon date parsing function could cause a heap overflow which could lead to remote code execution, depending on the application using libneon.

The vulnerability is in the function ne_rfc1036_parse, which is in turn used by the function ne_httpdate_parse. Applications using either of these neon functions may be vulnerable.
