Description Josh Bressers 2009-07-30 15:33:12 UTC
Matt Lewis discovered an integer over flaw in the subversion server. A user with commit access to a repository could send a specially crafted commit that could cause the subversion server to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the server.

Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2009-08-10 14:37:37 UTC
The advisory indicates these are heap overflow issues, not an integer overflow issue (just to clarify).

Despite of comment #6, and FEDORA-2009-8432 annoucement, so far this update did not show up in Fedora 10 repositories.  Other F10 packages annouced at the same time and later, and also subversion-1.6.4-2.fc11 for F11, already did.

It appears that "Priority: major" of this ticket is not so major after all.  It does not seem to have any repository effects after a week.

Comment 11 Michal Jaegermann 2009-08-27 22:03:27 UTC
subversion-1.6.4-2.fc10 at last showed up on repos.  The catch is that this took over two weeks for a security update.  Smells like a problem to me although I do not know where.
