Fedora Core 2 2004-128: subversion

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the subversion package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-128 (subversion).

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:

Stefan Esser discovered an issue in the date parsing routines in
Subversion which permits a buffer overflow. A possible hacker could send
malicious requests to a Subversion server (either Apache-based using
mod_dav_svn, or using the svnserve daemon) and perform arbitrary
execution of code.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0397 to this issue. This update includes
packages with a patch for this issue.
