Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : subversion (MDVSA-2013:288)

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

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Updated subversion package fixes security vulnerabilities :

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 (CVE-2013-4505).

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
