Subversion's mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module will crash when it receives a request for some invalid formatted special URIs.

We consider this to be a medium risk vulnerability. Repositories which allow for anonymous reads will be vulnerable without authentication.
Unfortunately, no special configuration is required and all mod_dav_svn servers are vulnerable.
