Neon NULL Character CA SSL Certificate Validation Security Bypass Vulnerability
Neon is prone to a security-bypass vulnerability because it fails to properly validate the domain name in a signed CA certificate, allowing attackers to substitute malicious SSL certificates for trusted ones.
This issue affects Neon when compiled against OpenSSL.
Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to perform man-in-the-middle attacks or impersonate trusted servers, which will aid in further attacks.
Versions prior to Neon 0.28.6 are vulnerable. Additional applications that use the affected library may also be vulnerable.
