    Bas van Schaik discovered that WebSVN, a tool to view Subversion
    repositories over the web, did not properly restrict access to private
    repositories, allowing a remote attacker to read significant parts of
    their content.
    
    The old stable distribution (etch) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0-4+lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has also been fixed in
    version 2.0-4+lenny1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your websvn package.
    
    Upgrade instructions
    - --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
