subversion (SL7)

Synopsis: Moderate: subversion security update
Advisory ID: SLSA-2015:1742-1
Issue Date: 2015-09-08
CVE Numbers: CVE-2015-0248
CVE-2015-0251
CVE-2015-3187
CVE-2015-3184

An assertion failure flaw was found in the way the SVN server processed
certain requests with dynamically evaluated revision numbers. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to cause the SVN server (both svnserve and
httpd with the mod_dav_svn module) to crash. (CVE-2015-0248)

It was found that the mod_authz_svn module did not properly restrict
anonymous access to Subversion repositories under certain configurations
when used with Apache httpd 2.4.x. This could allow a user to anonymously
access files in a Subversion repository, which should only be accessible
to authenticated users. (CVE-2015-3184)

It was found that the mod_dav_svn module did not properly validate the
svn:author property of certain requests. An attacker able to create new
revisions could use this flaw to spoof the svn:author property.
(CVE-2015-0251)

It was found that when an SVN server (both svnserve and httpd with the
mod_dav_svn module) searched the history of a file or a directory, it
would disclose its location in the repository if that file or directory
was not readable (for example, if it had been moved). (CVE-2015-3187)

After installing the updated packages, for the update to take effect, you
must restart the httpd daemon, if you are using mod_dav_svn, and the
svnserve daemon, if you are serving Subversion repositories via the svn://
protocol.
