CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : cvs
SUMMARY   : Fix for remote vulnerability
DATE      : 2004-01-20 08:42:00
ID        : CLA-2004:808
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 8, 9

DESCRIPTION
 CVS[1] is a version control system largely used in software
 projects.
 
 By requesting malformed modules[2] a remote attacker can attempt to
 create files and directories on the server's root file system. This
 is usually prevented by file system permissions, however.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all cvs users upgrade their packages.
