Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200409-35] Subversion: Metadata information leak

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Subversion: Metadata information leak

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200409-35
(Subversion: Metadata information leak)


There is a bug in mod_authz_svn that causes it to reveal logged metadata
regarding commits to protected areas.

Impact

Protected files themselves will not be revealed, but a possible hacker could use
the metadata to reveal the existence of protected areas, such as paths,
file versions, and the commit logs from those areas.

Workaround

Rather than using mod_authz_svn, move protected areas into seperate
repositories and use native Apache authentication to make these
repositories unreadable.
