[DSA806] DSA-806-1 gcvs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-806-1 gcvs

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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.
