The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


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


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


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


Subversion mod_dav_svn was vulnerable to a denial of service attack through a remotely triggered memory exhaustion.

CVE-2013-1846 / CVE-2013-1847 / CVE-2013-1849 / CVE-2014-0032

Subversion mod_dav_svn was vulnerable to multiple remotely triggered crashes.

This update has been prepared by James McCoy.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
