Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 8.10 / 9.04 : subversion vulnerability (USN-812-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 40528

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Matt Lewis discovered that Subversion did not properly sanitize its input when processing svndiff streams, leading to various integer and heap overflows. If a user or automated system processed crafted input, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user processing the input.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
