Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA605] DSA-605-1 viewcvs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-605-1 viewcvs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Haris Sehic discovered several vulnerabilities in viewcvs, a utility
for viewing CVS and Subversion repositories via HTTP. When exporting
a repository as a tar archive the hide_cvsroot and forbidden settings
were not honoured enough.
When upgrading the package for woody, please make a copy of your
/etc/viewcvs/viewcvs.conf file if you have manually edited this file.
Upon upgrade the debconf mechanism may alter it in a way so that
viewcvs doesn't understand it anymore.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.2-4woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.9.2+cvs.1.0.dev.2004.07.28-1.2.
We recommend that you upgrade your viewcvs package.
