A vulnerability has been reported in neon, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to an out of bounds read within the "ne_uri_parse()" function when parsing URIs with non-ASCII characters. This can be exploited to cause a DoS by tricking an application using the library to parse specially crafted URIs.
Note: The vulnerability may be specific for 64bit architectures.
Solution: Use trusted servers only.
