WANdisco Subversion Committer Ben Reser Recognized for Contributions
The Apache HTTP Server Project announced the release of version 2.2.25 of the Apache HTTP Server (“httpd”) on July 10th, 2013.
WANdisco Subversion committer Ben Reser was thanked in the official announcement for identifying a Denial of Service vulnerability. The vulnerability known as CVE-2013-1896 may allow remote users with write access to crash the httpd server hosting Subversion repositories. Subversion administrators are urged to upgrade their installation of httpd to 2.2.25 or the latest 2.4.x release.
WANdisco’s Subversion binary packages for Solaris and Windows operating systems have been updated to include the updated version of httpd. Download them from our website.
According to Apache, 2.2.25 “is principally a security and bugfix release.” See the official 2.2.25 changelist for a complete list of improvements in this release.
