Package : subversion
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2013-1968 CVE-2013-2112
Debian Bug : 711033

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


Subversion repositories with the FSFS repository data store format
can be corrupted by newline characters in filenames. A remote
attacker with a malicious client could use this flaw to disrupt the
service for other users using that repository.


Subversion's svnserve server process may exit when an incoming TCP
connection is closed early in the connection process. A remote
attacker can cause svnserve to exit and thus deny service to users
of the server.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.6.12dfsg-7.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.6.17dfsg-4+deb7u3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your subversion packages.
