Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-190: cvs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the cvs packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated cvs package that fixes a server vulnerability that could be
exploited by a malicious client is now available.

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

Stefan Esser discovered a flaw in cvs where malformed "Entry"
lines could cause a heap overflow. A possible hacker who has access to a CVS
server could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code under the UID which
the CVS server is executing. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0396 to this issue.

Users of CVS are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains
a backported patch correcting this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Stefan Esser for notifying us of this issue and
Derek Price for providing an updated patch.
