Synopsis
========

sitecopy includes a vulnerable version of the neon library.

Background
==========

sitecopy easily maintains remote websites. It makes it simple to keep a
remote site synchronized with the local site with one command.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package            /    Vulnerable    /                Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-misc/sitecopy      <= 0.13.4-r1

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 sitecopy 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 sitecopy.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

Currently, there is no released version of sitecopy that contains a fix
for this issue. The original author of the program has indicated he is
unsure when a fixed version may be released. Therefore, the sitecopy
package has been hard-masked and current users are advised to unmerge
the package until a new version is available.

    # emerge -pv unmerge net-misc/sitecopy
    # emerge unmerge net-misc/sitecopy
