- Date Reported:
- 29 Aug 2019
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-11782, CVE-2019-0203.
- More information:
Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Subversion, a version control system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
Ace Olszowka reported that the Subversion's svnserve server process may exit when a well-formed read-only request produces a particular answer, leading to a denial of service.
Tomas Bortoli reported that the Subversion's svnserve server process may exit when a client sends certain sequences of protocol commands. If the server is configured with anonymous access enabled this could lead to a remote unauthenticated denial of service.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.8.10-6+deb8u7.
We recommend that you upgrade your subversion packages.
