-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 : 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 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Tue Sep 3 2013 Joe Orton <> - 1.7.13-1 - update to 1.7.13 (#1003070) - move bash completions out of /etc (#922993) * Thu Jul 25 2013 Joe Orton <> - 1.7.11-1 - update to 1.7.11 - use full relro in mod_dav_svn build (#973694) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: [ 1 ] Bug #1000202 - CVE-2013-4277 subversion: svnserve is vulnerable to symlink attack -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use su -c 'yum update subversion' at the command line. For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum", available at All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.
