Subversion project reports:

svnserve, the svn:// protocol server, can optionally use the Cyrus SASL library for authentication, integrity protection, and encryption. Due to a programming oversight, authentication against Cyrus SASL would permit the remote user to specify a realm string which is a prefix of the expected realm string.

Subversion's httpd servers are vulnerable to a remotely triggerable crash in the mod_authz_svn module. The crash can occur during an authorization check for a COPY or MOVE request with a specially crafted header value.

This allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service.
