Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 9.10 / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : subversion vulnerability (USN-1096-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 53220
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionPhilip Martin discovered that the Subversion mod_dav_svn module for Apache did not properly handle certain requests containing a lock token. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause the service to crash, leading to a denial of service.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
