The CollabNet Subversion Edge Management Frontend leaks the unsalted MD5 hash of
password of the currently logged in user via a "POST /csvn/user/index" request.
An attacker that exploits an XSS or has gained a valid session via other means
is able to retrieve the unsalted MD5 hash of the corresponding user and easily
crack the hash in order to know the users password.

Request 1 (set password)
	POST /csvn/user/index HTTP/1.1
	Host: example.com:4434

Response 1:
	HTTP/1.1 302 Found
	Location: https://example.com:4434/csvn/user/show/5
	Content-Length: 0

Request 2 (generated by clicking edit in the following page; request below the iamge): 
	GET /csvn/user/edit/5 HTTP/1.1
	Host: example.com:4434
	Cookie: SESSID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx;

Response 2 (leaked hash read from DB and echoed back into password change form):
	HTTP/1.1 200 OK
	<input type="password" id="passwd" name="passwd" value="4db81436059d080afe532cc0cbd1cea5"/>

Fix proposal:

Do not echo the current hash in the database back to the user when changing the
password. Only accept passwords as input fields and no hashes.

Vendor fix:

The leak is plugged.
