Amazon Linux AMI : subversion (ALAS-2014-318)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 73237

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

A flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module handled OPTIONS requests. A remote attacker with read access to an SVN repository served via HTTP could use this flaw to cause the httpd process that handled such a request to crash.

The get_resource function in repos.c in the mod_dav_svn module in Apache Subversion before 1.7.15 and 1.8.x before 1.8.6, when SVNListParentPath is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors related to the server root and request methods other than GET, as demonstrated by the 'svn ls http://svn.example.com' command.

Solution

Run 'yum update subversion' to update your system.
