Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

Description :

Matt Lewis discovered that Subversion did not properly sanitize its
input when processing svndiff streams, leading to various integer and
heap overflows. If a user or automated system processed crafted input,
a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or potentially
execute arbitrary code as the user processing the input.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 8.5
