Fedora Core 2 : subversion-1.0.6-1 (2004-231)

High Nessus Plugin ID 13750


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update includes the latest release of Subversion, including a security fix for an issue in the mod_authz_svn Apache authentication module which could allow a read restriction for a portion of the repository to be bypassed by a user who has write access to a different portion of the repository. This issue does not affect the svnserve daemon.

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.


Update the affected packages.
