Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: cvs
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:028
Date: April 14th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Sebastian Krahmer from the SUSE security team discovered a remotely exploitable vulnerability in the CVS client. When doing a cvs checkout or update over a network, the client accepts absolute pathnames in the RCS diff files. A maliciously configured server could then create any file with content on the local user's disk. This problem affects all versions of CVS prior to 1.11.15 which has fixed the problem.

The updated packages provide 1.11.14 with the pertinent fix for the problem.
