Public Date:
1247249: CVE-2015-3184 subversion: Mixed anonymous/authenticated path-based authz with httpd 2.4
It was found that the mod_authz_svn module did not properly restrict anonymous access to Subversion repositories under certain configurations when used with Apache httpd 2.4.x. This could allow a user to anonymously access files in a Subversion repository, which should only be accessible to authenticated users.
