FreeBSD : subversion -- Arbitrary code execution vulnerability (6e80bd9b-7e9b-11e7-abfe-90e2baa3bafc)

Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

subversion team reports :

A Subversion client sometimes connects to URLs provided by the
repository. This happens in two primary cases: during 'checkout',
'export', 'update', and 'switch', when the tree being downloaded
contains svn:externals properties; and when using 'svnsync sync' with
one URL argument.

A maliciously constructed svn+ssh:// URL would cause Subversion
clients to run an arbitrary shell command. Such a URL could be
generated by a malicious server, by a malicious user committing to a
honest server (to attack another user of that server's repositories),
or by a proxy server.

The vulnerability affects all clients, including those that use
file://, http://, and plain (untunneled) svn://.

An exploit has been tested.
