Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-004: cvs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cvs packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated cvs packages closing a vulnerability that could permit cvs to
attempt to create files and directories in the root file system are now
available.

CVS is a version control system frequently used to manage source code
repositories.

A flaw was found in versions of CVS prior to 1.11.10 where a malformed
module request could cause the CVS server to attempt to create files or
directories at the root level of the file system. However, normal file
system permissions would prevent the creation of these misplaced
directories. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0977 to this issue.

Users of CVS are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain a patch correcting this issue.

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, these updates also fix an off-by-one
overflow in the CVS PreservePermissions code. The PreservePermissions
feature is not used by default (and can only be used for local CVS). The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2002-0844 to this issue.
