Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Subversion Project reports :

mod_dontdothat does not restrict requests from serf based clients

mod_dontdothat allows you to block update REPORT requests against
certain paths in the repository. It expects the paths in the REPORT
request to be absolute URLs. Serf based clients send relative URLs
instead of absolute URLs in many cases. As a result these clients are
not blocked as configured by mod_dontdothat.

mod_dav_svn assertion triggered by non-canonical URLs in
autoversioning commits

When SVNAutoversioning is enabled via SVNAutoversioning on commits can
be made by single HTTP requests such as MKCOL and PUT. If Subversion
is built with assertions enabled any such requests that have
non-canonical URLs, such as URLs with a trailing /, may trigger an
assert. An assert will cause the Apache process to abort.
