The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A server-side memory leak was found in the Subversion server. If a
malicious, remote user performed 'svn blame' or 'svn log' operations
on certain repository files, it could cause the Subversion server to
consume a large amount of system memory. (CVE-2010-4644)
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn
module (for use with the Apache HTTP Server) processed certain
requests. If a malicious, remote user issued a certain type of request
to display a collection of Subversion repositories on a host that has
the SVNListParentPath directive enabled, it could cause the httpd
process serving the request to crash. Note that SVNListParentPath is
not enabled by default. (CVE-2010-4539)
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.
