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 host is affected by multiple remote denial of service vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Apache SVN 1.7.x prior to 1.7.19 or 1.8.x prior to 1.8.11. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities :

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in 'mod_dav_svn' that is triggered when handling REPORT requests. A remote attacker, using a specially crafted request, can cause the listener process to crash. (CVE-2014-3580)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in 'mod_dav_svn' that is triggered when handling requests for non-existent virtual transaction names. A remote attacker, using a specially crafted request, can cause the listener process to crash. (CVE-2014-8108)

Solution

Upgrade to Subversion 1.7.19 / 1.8.11 or later.
