Description Adam Mariš 2015-09-14 12:13:40 EDT
A vulnerability in Workbench was found. If a user was tricked into using the "Command Shell" menu item while in a directory with a specially-crafted name, svn-workbench would execute arbitrary commands with the permissions of the user.

Created pysvn tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1262929]
Affects: epel-all [bug 1262930]
Comment 2 Stephen Gallagher 2015-09-18 13:01:21 EDT
According to the reproducer page, this affects the svn-workbench project, not pysvn. svn-workbench produced by the same upstream, but there is no such vulnerability in pysvn.

Fedora does not ship svn-workbench, so closing all as NOTABUG.
