A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the mod_dav_svn module handled certain requests for URIs that trigger a lookup of a virtual transaction name. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could send a request for a virtual transaction name that does not exist, causing mod_dav_svn to crash.
