Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest stable release of Subversion, fixing
many bugs and a security issue: Matt Lewis reported multiple heap
overflow flaws in Subversion (servers and clients) when parsing binary
deltas. Malicious users with commit access to a vulnerable server
could uses these flaws to cause a heap overflow on the server running
Subversion. A malicious Subversion server could use these flaws to
cause a heap overflow on vulnerable clients when they attempt to
checkout or update, resulting in a crash or, possibly, arbitrary code
execution on the vulnerable client. (CVE-2009-2411) This update also
adds support for storing passwords in the GNOME Keyring or KDE Wallet,
via the new subversion-gnome and subversion-kde subpackages. For more
details of the bug fixes included in this update, see:
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.6.4/CHANGES

description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
