<p>
Subversion is a versioning system designed to be a replacement for CVS.
mod_authz_svn is an Apache module to do path-based authentication for
Subversion repositories.

<description>
<p>
There is a bug in mod_authz_svn that causes it to reveal logged metadata
regarding commits to protected areas.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="low">
<p>
Protected files themselves will not be revealed, but an attacker could use
the metadata to reveal the existence of protected areas, such as paths,
file versions, and the commit logs from those areas.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
Rather than using mod_authz_svn, move protected areas into seperate
repositories and use native Apache authentication to make these
repositories unreadable.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Subversion users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=dev-util/subversion-1.0.8"
# emerge ">=dev-util/subversion-1.0.8"</code>
</resolution>
