Debian Security Advisory DSA-1725-1                  security () debian org

Package        : websvn
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2009-0240
Debian Bug     : 512191

Bas van Schaik discovered that WebSVN, a tool to view Subversion
repositories over the web, did not properly restrict access to private
repositories, allowing a remote attacker to read significant parts of
their content.

The old stable distribution (etch) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.0-4+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has also been fixed in
version 2.0-4+lenny1.

We recommend that you upgrade your websvn package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
