Name        : subversion
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 1.7.11
Release     : 1.fc18.1
URL         : http://subversion.apache.org/
Summary     : A Modern Concurrent Version Control System
Description :
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:

This update includes the latest release of Apache Subversion 1.7, version
1.7.11.  Several security vulnerabilities are fixed in this update:

Subversion's mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module will trigger an
assertion on some requests made against a revision root.  This can lead to
a DoS.  If assertions are disabled it will trigger a read overflow which
may cause a segmentation fault or undefined behavior.  Commit access is
required to exploit this.

If a filename which contains a newline character (ASCII 0x0a) is
committed to a repository using the FSFS format, the resulting
revision is corrupt.  This can lead to disruption for users of the
repository.  (CVE-2013-1968)

Subversion's contrib/ directory contains two example hook scripts, which
use 'svnlook changed' to examine a revision or transaction and then pass
those paths as arguments to further 'svnlook' commands, without properly
escaping the command-line.  (CVE-2013-2088)

Subversion's svnserve server process may exit when an incoming TCP
connection is closed early in the connection process.  This can lead to
disruption for users of the server.  (CVE-2013-2112)

The following client-side bugs were fixed in the 1.7.10 release:

* fix 'svn revert' "no such table: revert_list" spurious error
* fix 'svn diff' doesn't show some locally added files
* fix changelist filtering when --changelist values aren't UTF8
* fix 'svn diff --git' shows wrong copyfrom
* fix 'svn diff -x-w' shows wrong changes
* fix 'svn blame' sometimes shows every line as modified
* fix regression in 'svn status -u' output for externals
* fix file permissions change on commit of file with keywords
* improve some fatal error messages
* fix externals not removed when working copy is made shallow

The following server-side bugs are fixed:

* fix repository corruption due to newline in filename
* fix svnserve exiting when a client connection is aborted
* fix svnserve memory use after clear
