medium Nessus Plugin ID 80207
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.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Evgeny Kotkov discovered a NULL pointer dereference while processing REPORT requests in mod_dav_svn, the Subversion component which is used to serve repositories with the Apache web server. A remote attacker could abuse this vulnerability for a denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the subversion packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.6.17dfsg-4+deb7u7.
