[CVE-2018-11803] Apache Subversion Denial of Service Vulnerability

From: Troy Curtis <troycurtisjr_at_apache.org>
Date: Tue, 22 Jan 2019 22:55:14 -0500

This is a security notification for Apache Subversion HTTP Servers:

Severity: Medium
Affected Versions: Apache Subversion 1.11.0, 1.10.0 to 1.10.3

Subversion's mod_dav_svn Apache HTTPD module versions 1.11.0 and 1.10.0
to 1.10.3 will crash after dereferencing an uninitialized pointer if the
client omits the root path in a recursive directory listing operation.
This issue can be triggered by any client on Subversion repositories
configured for anonymous read access. If read access requires
authentication, a denial of service attack can only be performed by an
authenticated user.

The Subversion releases 1.10.4 and 1.11.1 contain the fixes for this
vulnerability and are available immediately at:


Additional details, including patches for 1.10.3 and 1.11.0 can be found at:


We encourage users of Subversion to upgrade to the latest appropriate
version as soon as reasonable.
