Fedora 19 : subversion-1.7.11-1.fc19 (2013-13696)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest release of Apache Subversion 1.7,
version 1.7.11. This fixes a security vulnerability in mod_dav_svn :

Subversion's mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module will trigger an
assertion on some requests made against a revision root. This can lead
to a DoS. If assertions are disabled it will trigger a read overflow
which may cause a segmentation fault or undefined behavior. Commit
access is required to exploit this. (CVE-2013-4131)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
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.
