Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2013-15717
2013-09-03 21:16:26
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : subversion
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 1.7.13
Release     : 1.fc19
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 stable release of Apache Subversion 1.7,
version 1.7.13.  One security vulnerability is fixed in this update:

svnserve takes a --pid-file option which creates a file containing the
process id it is running as.  It does not take steps to ensure that the
file it has been directed at is not a symlink.  If the pid file is in a
directory writeable by unprivileged users, the destination could be
replaced by a symlink allowing for privilege escalation.  svnserve does not
create a pid file by default.  (CVE-2013-4277)

Several bug fixes are also included:

* merge: fix bogus mergeinfo with conflicting file merges
* diff: fix duplicated path component in '--summarize' output
* mod_dav_svn: better status codes for commit failures
* mod_dav_svn: do not map requests to filesystem

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
