Fedora Core 2 : subversion-1.0.8-1 (2004-318)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 14808


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update includes the latest stable release of Subversion, including a security fix for information disclosure bugs in handling of metadata (such as log messages) in repositories using mod_authz_svn for path-based access-control (CVE-2004-0749).

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.
