    Package        : subversion
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-8734 CVE-2017-9800
    
    Several problems were discovered in Subversion, a centralised version
    control system.
    
    CVE-2016-8734 (jessie only)
    
        Subversion's mod_dontdothat server module and Subversion clients
        using http(s):// were vulnerable to a denial-of-service attack
        caused by exponential XML entity expansion.
    
    CVE-2017-9800
    
        Joern Schneeweisz discovered that Subversion did not correctly
        handle maliciously constructed svn+ssh:// URLs. This allowed an
        attacker to run an arbitrary shell command, for instance via
        svn:externals properties or when using 'svnsync sync'.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.8.10-6+deb8u5.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.9.5-1+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your subversion packages.
