-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2011-8352 2011-06-15 17:46:08 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name : subversion Product : Fedora 15 Version : 1.6.17 Release : 1.fc15 URL : http://subversion.apache.org/ Summary : A Modern Concurrent Version Control System Description : Subversion is a concurrent version control system which enables one or more users to collaborate in developing and maintaining a hierarchy of files and directories while keeping a history of all changes. Subversion only stores the differences between versions, instead of every complete file. Subversion is intended to be a compelling replacement for CVS. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: This update includes the latest release of Subversion, fixing three security issues: An infinite loop flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module processed certain data sets. If the SVNPathAuthz directive was set to "short_circuit", and path-based access control for files and directories was enabled, a malicious, remote user could use this flaw to cause the httpd process serving the request to consume an excessive amount of system memory. (CVE-2011-1783) A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module processed requests submitted against the URL of a baselined resource. A malicious, remote user could use this flaw to cause the httpd process serving the request to crash. (CVE-2011-1752) An information disclosure flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module processed certain URLs when path-based access control for files and directories was enabled. A malicious, remote user could possibly use this flaw to access certain files in a repository that would otherwise not be accessible to them. Note: This vulnerability cannot be triggered if the SVNPathAuthz directive is set to "short_circuit". (CVE-2011-1921) The Fedora Project would like to thank the Apache Subversion project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Joe Schaefer of the Apache Software Foundation as the original reporter of CVE-2011-1752; Ivan Zhakov of VisualSVN as the original reporter of CVE-2011-1783; and Kamesh Jayachandran of CollabNet, Inc. as the original reporter of CVE-2011-1921. The following bugs are also fixed in this release: * make 'blame -g' more efficient on with large mergeinfo * preserve log message with a non-zero editor exit * fix FSFS cache performance on 64-bit platforms * make svn cleanup tolerate obstructed directories * fix deadlock in multithreaded servers serving FSFS repositories * detect very occasional corruption and abort commit * fixed: file externals cause non-inheritable mergeinfo * fixed: file externals cause mixed-revision working copies * fixed: write-through proxy could direcly commit to slave * detect a particular corruption condition in FSFS * improve error message when clients refer to unkown revisions * bugfixes and optimizations to the DAV mirroring code * fixed: locked and deleted file causes tree conflict * fixed: update touches locked file with svn:keywords property * fix svnsync handling of directory copyfrom * fix 'log -g' excessive duplicate output * fix svnsync copyfrom handling bug with BDB * server-side validation of svn:mergeinfo syntax during commit -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Thu Jun 2 2011 Joe Orton <jorton@redhat.com> - 1.6.17-1 - update to 1.6.17 (#709952) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: [ 1 ] Bug #709952 - CVE-2011-1752 CVE-2011-1783 CVE-2011-1921 subversion various flaws [fedora-all] https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=709952 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.
