medium Nessus Plugin ID 82102


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


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.

We recommend that you upgrade your subversion packages.
