New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 4.7

Synopsis

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

Description

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).

Solution

Update the affected packages.
