Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: ViewVC: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200803-29)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 19, 2008
Updated: April 01, 2009
Bug(s): #212288
ID: 200803-29

Synopsis


Multiple security issues have been reported in ViewVC, which can be
exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.


Background


ViewVC is a browser interface for CVS and Subversion version control
repositories.


Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/viewvc
Vulnerable: < 1.0.5
Unaffected: >= 1.0.5
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Multiple unspecified errors were reportedly fixed by the ViewVC
development team.


Impact


A remote attacker could send a specially crafted URL to the server to
list CVS or SVN commits on "all-forbidden" files, access hidden CVSROOT
folders, and view restricted content via the revision view, the log
history, or the diff view.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All ViewVC users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/viewvc-1.0.5"
