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

medium Nessus Plugin ID 82338
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 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.
