Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module handled certain requests for URIs that trigger a lookup of a virtual transaction name. 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)

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

Solution

Run 'yum update subversion' to update your system.
