Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:058: cvs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cvs package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:058 (cvs).


Another vulnerability was discovered related to 'Entry' lines in cvs, by the
development team (CVE-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 (CVE-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 (CVE-2004-0417).
It was found that the serve_notify() function would write data out of bounds
(CVE-2004-0418).
The provided packages update cvs to 1.11.16 and include patches to correct all
of these problems.
