Fedora 19 : subversion-1.7.11-1.fc19 (2013-13696)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 69188
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update includes the latest release of Apache Subversion 1.7, version 1.7.11. This fixes a security vulnerability in mod_dav_svn :
Subversion's mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module will trigger an assertion on some requests made against a revision root. This can lead to a DoS. If assertions are disabled it will trigger a read overflow which may cause a segmentation fault or undefined behavior. Commit access is required to exploit this. (CVE-2013-4131)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected subversion package.
