The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200903-20
(WebSVN: Multiple vulnerabilities)
James Bercegay of GulfTech Security reported a Cross-site scripting
(XSS) vulnerability in the getParameterisedSelfUrl() function in
index.php (CVE-2008-5918) and a directory traversal vulnerability in
rss.php when magic_quotes_gpc is disabled (CVE-2008-5919).
Bas van Schaik reported that listing.php does not properly enforce
access restrictions when using an SVN authz file to authenticate users
A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to overwrite
arbitrary files, to read changelogs or diffs for restricted projects
and to hijack a user's session.
There is no known workaround at this time.
