Fedora Update Notification

Name : cvs
Version : 1.11.15
Release : 1
Summary : A version control system.
Description :
CVS (Concurrent Version System) is a version control system that can record the history of your files (usually, but not always, source code). CVS only stores the differences between versions, instead of every version of every file you have ever created. CVS also keeps a log of who, when, and why changes occurred.

CVS is very helpful for managing releases and controlling the concurrent editing of source files among multiple authors. Instead of providing version control for a collection of files in a single directory, CVS provides version control for a hierarchical collection of directories consisting of revision controlled files. These directories and files can then be combined together to form a software

Update Information:

The client for CVS before 1.11.15 allows a remote malicious CVS server to create arbitrary files using certain RCS diff files that use absolute pathnames during checkouts or updates.

Updated packages were made available in April 2004 however the original update notification email did not make it to fedora-announce-list at that time.
