Fedora Core 1 : subversion-0.32.1-2 (2004-127)
High Nessus Plugin ID 13702
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionStefan Esser discovered an issue in the date parsing routines in Subversion which allows a buffer overflow. An attacker could send malicious requests to a Subversion server (either Apache-based using mod_dav_svn, or using the svnserve daemon) and perform arbitrary execution of code.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0397 to this issue. This update includes packages with a patch for this issue.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
