Fedora 19 : subversion-1.7.16-1.fc19 (2014-3567)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 73041

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update includes the latest stable release of Apache Subversion 1.7, fixing a security issue (CVE-2014-0032) :

Subversion's mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module will crash when it receives an OPTIONS request against the server root and Subversion is configured to handle the server root and SVNListParentPath is on.

This can lead to a DoS. There are no known instances of this problem being exploited in the wild, but the details of how to exploit it have been disclosed on the Subversion development mailing list.

For more information, see :

https://subversion.apache.org/security/CVE-2014-0032-advisory.txt

A number of client-side bug fixes are included in this update :

- copy: fix some scenarios that broke the working copy

- diff: fix regressions due to fixes in 1.7.14

One server-side bug fixes is also included :

- reduce memory usage during checkout and export

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.

Solution

Update the affected subversion package.
