Fedora 19 : subversion-1.7.13-1.fc19 (2013-15717)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update includes the latest stable release of Apache Subversion
1.7, version 1.7.13. One security vulnerability is fixed in this
update :

svnserve takes a --pid-file option which creates a file containing the
process id it is running as. It does not take steps to ensure that the
file it has been directed at is not a symlink. If the pid file is in a
directory writeable by unprivileged users, the destination could be
replaced by a symlink allowing for privilege escalation. svnserve does
not create a pid file by default. (CVE-2013-4277)

Several bug fixes are also included :

- merge: fix bogus mergeinfo with conflicting file merges

- diff: fix duplicated path component in '--summarize'
output

- mod_dav_svn: better status codes for commit failures

- mod_dav_svn: do not map requests to filesystem

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.
