no flags Details

Description Martin Prpič 2015-12-09 12:17:21 UTC
The following flaw was reported in Subversion:

Subversion servers and clients are vulnerable to a remotely triggerable heap-based buffer overflow and out-of-bounds read caused by an integer overflow in the svn:// protocol parser.

This allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code under the context of the targeted process.

Acknowledgements:

Red Hat would like to thank the Apache Software Foundation for reporting this issue. Upstream acknowledges Ivan Zhakov of VisualSVN as the original reporter.
