The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Subversion, a version control system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2015-0248 Subversion mod_dav_svn and svnserve were vulnerable to a remotely triggerable assertion DoS vulnerability for certain requests with dynamically evaluated revision numbers.

- CVE-2015-0251 Subversion HTTP servers allow spoofing svn:author property values for new revisions via specially crafted v1 HTTP protocol request sequences.


Upgrade the subversion packages.
