GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200312-04
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

GLSA: 200312-04
package: dev-util/cvs
summary: Fix for malformed module request vulnerability in cvs
severity: minimal
Gentoo bug: 35371
date: 2003-12-08
CVE: CAN-2003-0977
exploit: unknown
affected: <=1.11.9
fixed: >=1.11.10


DESCRIPTION:

Quote from <http://ccvs.cvshome.org/servlets/NewsItemView?newsID=84>:

Stable CVS 1.11.10 has been released. Stable releases contain only
bug fixes from previous versions of CVS. This release fixes a
security issue with no known exploits that could cause previous
versions of CVS to attempt to create files and directories in the
filesystem root. This release also fixes several issues relevant to
case insensitive filesystems and some other bugs. We recommend this
upgrade for all CVS clients and servers!"


SOLUTION:

All Gentoo Linux machines with cvs installed should be updated to use
cvs-1.11.10 or higher.

emerge sync
emerge -pv '>=dev-util/cvs-1.11.10'
emerge '>=dev-util/cvs-1.11.10'
emerge clean


// end
