Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : subversion (MDVSA-2015:085)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82338


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated subversion packages fix security vulnerabilities :

The mod_dav_svn module in Apache Subversion before 1.8.8, when SVNListParentPath is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an OPTIONS request (CVE-2014-0032).

Ben Reser discovered that Subversion did not correctly validate SSL certificates containing wildcards. A remote attacker could exploit this to perform a man in the middle attack to view sensitive information or alter encrypted communications (CVE-2014-3522).

Bert Huijben discovered that Subversion did not properly handle cached credentials. A malicious server could possibly use this issue to obtain credentials cached for a different server (CVE-2014-3528).

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way mod_dav_svn handled REPORT requests. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use a crafted REPORT request to crash mod_dav_svn (CVE-2014-3580).

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way mod_dav_svn handled URIs for virtual transaction names. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could send a request for a virtual transaction name that does not exist, causing mod_dav_svn to crash (CVE-2014-8108).


Update the affected packages.
