FreeBSD : subversion -- multiple vulnerabilities (e3244a7b-5603-11e3-878d-20cf30e32f6d)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 71088


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Subversion Project reports :

mod_dontdothat does not restrict requests from serf based clients

mod_dontdothat allows you to block update REPORT requests against certain paths in the repository. It expects the paths in the REPORT request to be absolute URLs. Serf based clients send relative URLs instead of absolute URLs in many cases. As a result these clients are not blocked as configured by mod_dontdothat.

mod_dav_svn assertion triggered by non-canonical URLs in autoversioning commits

When SVNAutoversioning is enabled via SVNAutoversioning on commits can be made by single HTTP requests such as MKCOL and PUT. If Subversion is built with assertions enabled any such requests that have non-canonical URLs, such as URLs with a trailing /, may trigger an assert. An assert will cause the Apache process to abort.


Update the affected packages.
