A vulnerability in Subversion could lead to a Denial of Service

Background
==========

Subversion is a version control system intended to eventually replace
CVS. Like CVS, it has an optional client-server architecture (where the
server can be an Apache server running mod_svn, or an ssh program as in
CVS’s :ext: method). In addition to supporting the features found in
CVS, Subversion also provides support for moving and copying files and
directories.

Description
===========

Workaround
