Debian Security Advisory DSA 486-1                                        Matt Zimmerman
April 16th, 2004

Package        : cvs
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0180 CAN-2004-0405

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered and fixed in CVS:

 CAN-2004-0180 - Sebastian Krahmer discovered a vulnerability whereby
 a malicious CVS pserver could create arbitary files on the client
 system during an update or checkout operation, by supplying absolute
 pathnames in RCS diffs.

 CAN-2004-0405 - Derek Robert Price discovered a vulnerability whereby
 a CVS pserver could be abused by a malicious client to view the
 contents of certain files outside of the CVS root directory using
 relative pathnames containing "../".

For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
fixed in version 1.11.1p1debian-9woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you update your cvs package.
