Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009:199: subversion


A vulnerability has been found and corrected in subversion:

Multiple integer overflows in the libsvn_delta library in Subversion
before 1.5.7, and 1.6.x before 1.6.4, allow remote authenticated users
and remote Subversion servers to execute arbitrary code via an svndiff
stream with large windows that trigger a heap-based buffer overflow,
a related issue to CVE-2009-2412 (CVE-2009-2411).

This update provides a solution to this vulnerability and in turn
upgrades subversion where possible to provide additional features
and upstream bugfixes and adds required dependencies where needed.
