    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Subversion, a version control
    system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    CVE-2013-1968
    
        Subversion repositories with the FSFS repository data store format
        can be corrupted by newline characters in filenames. A remote
        attacker with a malicious client could use this flaw to disrupt the
        service for other users using that repository.
    
    CVE-2013-2112
    
        Subversion's svnserve server process may exit when an incoming TCP
        connection is closed early in the connection process. A remote
        attacker can cause svnserve to exit and thus deny service to users
        of the server.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.6.12dfsg-7.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.6.17dfsg-4+deb7u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your subversion packages.
