DescriptionMultiple 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).
