A security flaw was found in the way Subversion, a concurrent version control system, sanitized content of arguments passed to 'check-mime-type.pl' and 'svn-keyword-check.pl' hook scripts. A remote, authenticated attacker could provide a specially-crafted filename that if inspected by some of the aforementioned two scripts, would lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running Subversion client.
