As Ben said, auth directory is 0700 but I already reported here (with
a CC on -dev) this issue about .subversion/servers that can contain
passwords and is readable by anybody.

On -dev it seems this is not a subversion issue but a user issue: "If
you store a password, you have to check corresponding file
permissions".

But I don't trust people enough (me at first) to completly agree this
point of view :)
