Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : subversion (MDVSA-2011:106)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 54964


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


Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in subversion :

The mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module will dereference a NULL pointer if asked to deliver baselined WebDAV resources which can lead to a DoS (Denial Of Service) (CVE-2011-1752).

The mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module may in certain cenarios enter a logic loop which does not exit and which allocates emory in each iteration, ultimately exhausting all the available emory on the server which can lead to a DoS (Denial Of Service) (CVE-2011-1783).

The mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module may leak to remote users the file contents of files configured to be unreadable by those users (CVE-2011-1921).

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 1.6.17 version which is not vulnerable to these issues.


Update the affected packages.
