Description

Integer overflow in the read_string function in libsvn_ra_svn/marshal.c in Apache Subversion 1.9.x before 1.9.3 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an svn:// protocol string, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow and an out-of-bounds read.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-vcs-subversion
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-net-libs-serf
