New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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:

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
