Fedora 7 : subversion-1.4.4-1.fc7 (2007-2635)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 27782


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update includes the Subversion 1.4.4 release, including a number of bug fixes and a fix for a minor security issue.

An issue was discovered in the implementation of access control for revision properties in the path-based authorization code. In a repository using path-based access control, if a path was copied from a private area to a public area, the revision properties of the (private) source path would become visible despite the access control restrictions. (CVE-2007-2448)

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.
