Scientific Linux Security Update : subversion on SL7.x x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

An assertion failure flaw was found in the way the SVN server
processed certain requests with dynamically evaluated revision
numbers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause the SVN server
(both svnserve and httpd with the mod_dav_svn module) to crash.

It was found that the mod_authz_svn module did not properly restrict
anonymous access to Subversion repositories under certain
configurations when used with Apache httpd 2.4.x. This could allow a
user to anonymously access files in a Subversion repository, which
should only be accessible to authenticated users. (CVE-2015-3184)

It was found that the mod_dav_svn module did not properly validate the
svn:author property of certain requests. An attacker able to create
new revisions could use this flaw to spoof the svn:author property.

It was found that when an SVN server (both svnserve and httpd with the
mod_dav_svn module) searched the history of a file or a directory, it
would disclose its location in the repository if that file or
directory was not readable (for example, if it had been moved).

After installing the updated packages, for the update to take effect,
you must restart the httpd daemon, if you are using mod_dav_svn, and
the svnserve daemon, if you are serving Subversion repositories via
the svn:// protocol.
