    subversion vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Subversion.
    
    Software Description:
    - subversion: Advanced version control system
    
    Details:
    
    Lieven Govaerts discovered that the Subversion mod_dav_svn module
    incorrectly handled certain request methods when SVNListParentPath was
    enabled. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the server to
    crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu
    12.04 LTS. (CVE-2014-0032)
    
    Ben Reser discovered that Subversion did not correctly validate SSL
    certificates containing wildcards. A remote attacker could exploit this to
    perform a man in the middle attack to view sensitive information or alter
    encrypted communications. (CVE-2014-3522)
    
    Bert Huijben discovered that Subversion did not properly handle cached
    credentials. A malicious server could possibly use this issue to obtain
    credentials cached for a different server. (CVE-2014-3528)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      libsvn1                         1.8.8-1ubuntu3.1
      subversion                      1.8.8-1ubuntu3.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libapache2-svn                  1.6.17dfsg-3ubuntu3.4
      libsvn1                         1.6.17dfsg-3ubuntu3.4
      subversion                      1.6.17dfsg-3ubuntu3.4
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
