Title: ViewVC: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200803-29)
Date: March 19, 2008
Updated: April 01, 2009
Multiple security issues have been reported in ViewVC, which can be
exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
ViewVC is a browser interface for CVS and Subversion version control
Vulnerable: < 1.0.5
Unaffected: >= 1.0.5
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple unspecified errors were reportedly fixed by the ViewVC
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ViewVC users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/viewvc-1.0.5"
