Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Subversion, which can be exploited by malicious users and malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to input validation errors in the processing of svndiff streams in the libsvn_delta library. This is related to a vulnerability in the APR library.

For more information:
SA36140

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code, but requires commit access to a vulnerable server or that a client uses a malicious server.

The vulnerabilities are reported in 1.5.6 and prior, and 1.6.0 through 1.6.3.

Hello ToM ,

This is not the correct place to post as your problem relates to your programme detection and not to the technical aspects of the SA itself .

I suggest you return to your original thread .
