Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 9.10 / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : subversion vulnerability (USN-1096-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Philip Martin discovered that the Subversion mod_dav_svn module for
Apache did not properly handle certain requests containing a lock
token. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause the service to
crash, leading to a denial of service.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
