FreeBSD : subversion -- heap overflow vulnerability (bce1f76d-82d0-11de-88ea-001a4d49522b)
High Nessus Plugin ID 40508
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionA Subversion Security Advisory reports :
Subversion clients and servers have multiple heap overflow issues in the parsing of binary deltas. This is related to an allocation vulnerability in the APR library used by Subversion.
Clients with commit access to a vulnerable server can cause a remote heap overflow; servers can cause a heap overflow on vulnerable clients that try to do a checkout or update.
This can lead to a DoS (an exploit has been tested) and to arbitrary code execution (no exploit tested, but the possibility is clear).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
