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
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

Stefan Esser discovered a vulnerability in the code of the neon library
(GLSA 200405-13): if a malicious date string is passed to the
ne_rfc1036_parse() function, it can trigger a string overflow into
static heap variables. tla includes it's own version of the library.

Impact
======

When connected to a malicious WebDAV server, this vulnerability 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:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=dev-util/tla-1.2.1_pre1"
    # emerge ">=dev-util/tla-1.2.1_pre1"
