Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Buffer overflow in Subversion

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200405-14
(Buffer overflow in Subversion)


All releases of Subversion prior to 1.0.3 have a vulnerability in the
date-parsing code. This vulnerability may permit denial of service or
arbitrary code execution as the Subversion user. Both the client and server
are vulnerable, and write access is NOT required to the server's
repository.

Impact

All servers and clients are vulnerable. Specifically, clients that permit
other users to write to administrative files in a working copy may be
exploited. Additionally all servers (whether they are httpd/DAV or
svnserve) are vulnerable. Write access to the server is not required

public read-only Subversion servers are also exploitable.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version.
