Debian Security Advisory DSA 486-1 security@debian.org

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
