Debian Security Advisory DSA 806-1 security@debian.org

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

Package : cvs
Vulnerability : insecure temporary files
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2693
Debian Bug : 325106

Marcus Meissner discovered that the cvsbug program from gcvs, the
Graphical frontend for CVS, which serves the popular Concurrent
Versions System, uses temporary files in an insecure fashion.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0a7-2woody1.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0final-5sarge1.

The unstable distribution (sid) does not expose the cvsbug program.

We recommend that you upgrade your gcvs package.


Upgrade Instructions
