#5689 closed defect (fixed)

empty path input corrupts svnauthz => trac aborts

Reported by: A.Visser@… Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: normal Component: SvnAuthzAdminPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Ryan J Ollos Trac Release: 0.11


If "Add a new Subversion path." is invoked without entering a path, an empty path is appended to svnauthz which causes trac to abort. So the project administrator can't undo the mistake, the empty path has to be removed manually by the system administrator.

I made a Q&D solution to solve this problem : edit the "" file and in the method "_add_path" just before the "try" add the following lines :

if not path :
    return {}

Finally the method looks like this :

    def _add_path(self, req):
        path = req.args.get('path')
        repository = None
        tmppath = req.args.get('path') 
    if ":" in tmppath: 
        repository, path = tmppath.split(":") 
        repository = repository.strip() 
        path = path.strip() 
        repository = self.authz_module 
        path = tmppath.strip() 
        if not path :
            return {}
            self.authz.add_path(Path(path, [], repository))
        return {}
        except Exception, e:
            return {'addpath_error' :  e}

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [11873]) Fixes #5689:

  • Added checks for non-empty group and path before attempting to add them. A warning is added if either are empty.
  • Extracted code to a method _get_authz.
  • Corrected tabs and indentation.
