    Debian Bug     : 775682
    
    James Clawson discovered that websvn, a web viewer for Subversion
    repositories, would follow symlinks in a repository when presenting a
    file for download. An attacker with repository write access could
    thereby access any file on disk readable by the user the webserver
    runs as.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.3-1.1+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.3-1.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your websvn packages.
