    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Subversion, a version control
    system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problems:
    
    CVE-2016-2167
    
        Daniel Shahaf and James McCoy discovered that an implementation
        error in the authentication against the Cyrus SASL library would
        permit a remote user to specify a realm string which is a prefix of
        the expected realm string and potentially allowing a user to
        authenticate using the wrong realm.
    
    CVE-2016-2168
    
        Ivan Zhakov of VisualSVN discovered a remotely triggerable denial
        of service vulnerability in the mod_authz_svn module during COPY or
        MOVE authorization check. An authenticated remote attacker could
        take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service
        (Subversion server crash) via COPY or MOVE requests with specially
        crafted header.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.8.10-6+deb8u4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.9.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your subversion packages.
