Description

An access restriction bypass flaw was found in the mod_dav_svn module. If the SVNPathAuthz directive was set to 'short_circuit', certain access rules were not enforced, possibly allowing sensitive repository data to be leaked to remote users. Note that SVNPathAuthz is set to 'On' by default. (CVE-2010-3315)

A server-side memory leak was found in the Subversion server. If a malicious, remote user performed 'svn blame' or 'svn log' operations on certain repository files, it could cause the Subversion server to consume a large amount of system memory. (CVE-2010-4644)

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module processed certain requests. If a malicious, remote user issued a certain type of request to display a collection of Subversion repositories on a host that has the SVNListParentPath directive enabled, it could cause the httpd process serving the request to crash. Note that SVNListParentPath is not enabled by default. (CVE-2010-4539)

After installing the updated packages, the Subversion server must be restarted for the update to take effect: restart httpd if you are using mod_dav_svn, or restart svnserve if it is used.
