MDKSA-2004:108: 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-2004:108 (cvs).


iDEFENSE discovered a flaw in CVS versions prior to 1.1.17 in an undocumented
switch implemented in CVS' history command. The -X switch specifies the name of
the history file which permits a possible hacker to acertain whether arbitrary system
files and directories exist and whether or not the CVS process has access to
them.
This flaw has been fixed in CVS version 1.1.17.
