 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:236
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : subversion
 Date    : September 17, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated subversion package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 svnserve takes a --pid-file option which creates a file containing
 the process id it is running as. It does not take steps to ensure that
 the file it has been directed at is not a symlink. If the pid file is
 in a directory writeable by unprivileged users, the destination could
 be replaced by a symlink allowing for privilege escalation. svnserve
 does not create a pid file by default (CVE-2013-4277).
