    Several vulnerabilities were found in ViewVC, a web interface for CVS
    and Subversion repositories.
    
    CVE-2009-5024: remote attackers can bypass the cvsdb row_limit
    configuration setting, and consequently conduct resource-consumption
    attacks via the limit parameter.
    
    CVE-2012-3356: the remote SVN views functionality does not properly
    perform authorization, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended
    access restrictions.
    
    CVE-2012-3357: the SVN revision view does not properly handle log
    messages when a readable path is copied from an unreadable path, which
    allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information.
    
    CVE-2012-4533: "function name" lines returned by diff are not properly
    escaped, allowing attackers with commit access to perform cross site
    scripting.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.5-1.1+squeeze2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.1.5-1.4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your viewvc packages.
