For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit
<URL:http://www.freebsd.org/security/>.

I.   Background

The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a version control system.  It
may be used to access a repository locally, or to access a `remote
repository' using a number of different methods.  When accessing a
remote repository, the target machine runs the CVS server to fulfill
client requests.

II.  Problem Description

Two programming errors were discovered in which path names handled by
CVS were not properly validated.  In one case, the CVS client accepts
absolute path names from the server when determining which files to
update.  In another case, the CVS server accepts relative path names
from the client when determining which files to transmit, including
those containing references to parent directories (`../').

III. Impact

These programming errors generally only have a security impact when
dealing with remote CVS repositories.

A malicious CVS server may cause a CVS client to overwrite arbitrary
files on the client's system.

A CVS client may request RCS files from a remote system other than
those in the repository specified by $CVSROOT.  These RCS files need
not be part of any CVS repository themselves.

IV.  Workaround

Disable remote CVS repository operations.

V.   Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to 4-STABLE; or to the RELENG_5_2,
RELENG_4_9, or RELENG_4_8 security branch dated after the correction
date.

2) To patch your present system:

The following patches have been verified to apply to FreeBSD 4.8,
4.9, 5.1, and 5.2 systems.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-04:07/cvs.patch
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-04:07/cvs.patch.asc

b) Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch
# cd /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/cvs
# make obj && make depend && make && make install
