medium Nessus Plugin ID 72744
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host has an application that is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


The installed version of Subversion Server is affected by an error related to 'mod_dav_svn', the 'SVNListParentPath' configuration option, and handling 'OPTIONS' requests that could allow denial of service attacks.


Upgrade to Subversion Server 1.7.16 / 1.8.8 or later, or apply the vendor-supplied patch or workaround.
