Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : subversion (MDVSA-2011:006)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51798


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in subversion :

The walk function in repos.c in the mod_dav_svn module for the Apache HTTP Server, as distributed in Apache Subversion before 1.6.15, allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via vectors that trigger the walking of SVNParentPath collections (CVE-2010-4539).

Multiple memory leaks in rev_hunt.c in Apache Subversion before 1.6.15 allow remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and daemon crash) via the -g option to the blame command (CVE-2010-4644).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: products_id=490

The updated packages have been upgraded to the latest versions (1.5.9, 1.6.15) which is not affected by these issues and in turn contains many bugfixes as well.
