Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : subversion (MDVSA-2013:236)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated subversion package fixes security vulnerability :

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).
