The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn
module processed certain requests to lock working copy paths in a
repository. A remote attacker could issue a lock request that could
cause the httpd process serving the request to crash. (CVE-2011-0715)
This update also fixes the following bug :
- A regression was found in the handling of repositories
which do not have a 'db/fsfs.conf' file. The 'svnadmin
hotcopy' command would fail when trying to produce a
copy of such a repository. This command has been fixed
to ignore the absence of the 'fsfs.conf' file. The
'svnadmin hotcopy' command will now succeed for this
type of repository. (BZ#681522)
After installing the updated packages, you must restart the httpd
daemon, if you are using mod_dav_svn, for the update to take effect.
