Subversion is a version control system intended to eventually replace CVS. Like CVS, it has an optional client-server architecture (where the server can be an Apache server running mod_svn, or an ssh program as in CVS’s :ext: method). In addition to supporting the features found in CVS, Subversion also provides support for moving and copying files and directories.
A vulnerability was discovered in Subversion’s mod_dav_svn, that could lead to a Denial of Service Condition.
An attacker could cause a possible enial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Subversion users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-vcs/subversion-1.10.4"
