Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in subversion :

The walk function in repos.c in the mod_dav_svn module for the Apache
HTTP Server, as distributed in Apache Subversion before 1.6.15, allows
remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
dereference and daemon crash) via vectors that trigger the walking of
SVNParentPath collections (CVE-2010-4539).

Multiple memory leaks in rev_hunt.c in Apache Subversion before 1.6.15
allow remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (memory
consumption and daemon crash) via the -g option to the blame command
(CVE-2010-4644).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance
Program. Please visit this link to learn more:

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest versions (1.5.9,

many bugfixes as well.
