WebSVN is a web-based browsing tool for Subversion repositories written
in PHP.
James Bercegay of GulfTech Security reported a Cross-site scripting
(XSS) vulnerability in the getParameterisedSelfUrl() function in
index.php (CVE-2008-5918) and a directory traversal vulnerability in
rss.php when magic_quotes_gpc is disabled (CVE-2008-5919).
Bas van Schaik reported that listing.php does not properly enforce
access restrictions when using an SVN authz file to authenticate users
</ul> <p>
<impact type="normal">
A remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities to overwrite
arbitrary files, to read changelogs or diffs for restricted projects
and to hijack a user's session.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All WebSVN users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/websvn-2.1.0&quot;</code>
