Fedora Update Notification
2013-12-02 23:38:57

Name : subversion
Product : Fedora 20
Version : 1.8.5
Release : 2.fc20
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 stable release of Apache Subversion 1.8, version 1.8.5. Two security fixes are included:

mod_dontdothat allows you to block update REPORT requests against certain paths in the repository. It expects the paths in the REPORT request to be absolute URLs. Serf based clients send relative URLs instead of absolute URLs in many cases. As a result these clients are not blocked as configured by mod_dontdothat. (CVE-2013-4505)

When SVNAutoversioning is enabled via “SVNAutoversioning on” commits can be made by single HTTP requests such as MKCOL and PUT. If Subversion is built with assertions enabled any such requests that have non-canonical URLs, such as URLs with a trailing /, may trigger an assert. An assert will cause the Apache process to abort. (CVE-2013-4558)

Other fixes included in this update are as follows:

Client-side bugfixes:
* fix externals that point at redirected locations
* diff: fix assertion with move inside a copy

Server-side bugfixes:
* mod_dav_svn: Prevent crashes with some 3rd party modules
* mod_authz_svn: fix crash of mod_authz_svn with invalid config
* hotcopy: fix hotcopy losing revprop files in packed repos
