CVE-2009-2411 subversion: multiple heap overflow issues
Matt Lewis, of Google, reported multiple heap overflow flaws in
Subversion (server and client) when parsing binary deltas. A malicious
user with commit access to a server could use these flaws to cause a
heap overflow on that server. A malicious server could use these flaws
to cause a heap overflow on a client when it attempts to checkout or
update. These heap overflows can result in a crash or, possibly,
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2009-2411)
After installing the updated packages, the Subversion server must be
restarted for the update to take effect: restart httpd if you are
using mod_dav_svn, or restart svnserve if it is used.
