Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: cvs
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:058
Date: June 9th, 2004

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

Problem Description:

Another vulnerability was discovered related to "Entry" lines in cvs, by the development team (CAN-2004-0414).

As well, Stefan Esser and Sebastian Krahmer performed an audit on the cvs source code and discovered a number of other problems, including:

A double-free condition in the server code is exploitable
(CAN-2004-0416).

By sending a large number of arguments to the CVS server, it is possible to cause it to allocate a huge amount of memory which does not fit into the address space, causing an error (CAN-2004-0417).

It was found that the serve_notify() function would write data out of bounds (CAN-2004-0418).

The provided packages update cvs to 1.11.16 and include patches to correct all of these problems.
