Vulnerability Assessment Details

SuSE-SA:2004:008: 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 SuSE-SA:2004:008 (cvs).


The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) offers tools which permit developers
to share and maintain large software projects.
During the analyzation of the CVS protocol and their implementation, the
SuSE Security Team discovered a flaw within the handling of pathnames.
Evil CVS servers could specify absolute pathnames during checkouts and
updates, which permits to create arbitrary files with the permissions of
the user invoking the CVS client. This could lead to a compromise of the
system.

Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
Then, install the package using the command 'rpm -Fhv file.rpm' to apply
the update.
