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.
