    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Subversion, the version
    control system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2011-1752
    
        The mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module can be crashed though
        when asked to deliver baselined WebDAV resources.
    
    CVE-2011-1783
    
        The mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module can trigger a loop which
        consumes all available memory on the system.
    
    CVE-2011-1921
    
        The mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD server module may leak to remote users
        the file contents of files configured to be unreadable by those
        users.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.1dfsg1-7.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.12dfsg-6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.6.17dfsg-1.
