medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8973
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.


The remote host is running a version of Apache Subversion (SVN) that contains multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Apache Subversion installed on the remote host is 1.7.x prior to 1.7.21, or 1.8.x prior to 1.8.14 and is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A security bypass flaw affects the 'mod_authz_svn' module as it does not properly restrict anonymous access in some mixed anonymous/authenticated environments when using Subversion with Apache httpd 2.4. (CVE-2015-3184)
- An information disclosure flaw affects 'authz'. Subversion servers, both httpd and svnserve, will reveal some paths that should be hidden by path-based authz controls. (CVE-2015-3187)


Upgrade to Subversion 1.7.21 / 1.8.14 or later.
