Title:RedHat Update for subversion RHSA-2015:0165-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'subversion'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'subversion'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Subversion (SVN) 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. The
mod_dav_svn module is used with the Apache HTTP Server to allow access
to Subversion repositories via HTTP.

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module
handled REPORT requests. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use a
specially crafted REPORT request to crash mod_dav_svn. (CVE-2014-3580)

It was discovered that Subversion clients retrieved cached authentication
credentials using the MD5 hash of the server realm string without also
checking the server's URL. A malicious server able to provide a realm that
triggers an MD5 collision could possibly use this flaw to obtain the
credentials for a different realm. (CVE-2014-3528)

Red Hat would like to thank the Subversion project for reporting
CVE-2014-3580. Upstream acknowledges Evgeny Kotkov of VisualSVN as the
original reporter.

All subversion users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the
updated packages, for the update to take effect, you must restart the httpd
daemon, if you are using mod_dav_svn, and the svnserve daemon, if you are
serving Subversion repositories via the svn:// protocol.

Affected Software/OS:
subversion on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
