Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3388-1
August 11, 2017

subversion vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- - Ubuntu 17.04
- - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Subversion.

Software Description:
- - subversion: Advanced version control system

Details:

Joern Schneeweisz discovered that Subversion did not properly handle
host names in 'svn+ssh://' URLs. A remote attacker could use this
to construct a subversion repository that when accessed could run
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CVE-2017-9800)

Daniel Shahaf and James McCoy discovered that Subversion did not
properly verify realms when using Cyrus SASL authentication. A
remote attacker could use this to possibly bypass intended access
restrictions. This issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu
16.04 LTS. (CVE-2016-2167)

Florian Weimer discovered that Subversion clients did not properly
restrict XML entity expansion when accessing http(s):// URLs. A remote
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. This issue only
affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. (CVE-2016-8734)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:
