    Package        : cvs
    Vulnerability  : improper variable initialization
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Kim Nielsen recently found an internal problem with the CVS server and
    reported it to the vuln-dev mailing list.  The problem is triggered by
    an improperly initialized global variable.  A user exploiting this can
    crash the CVS server, which may be accessed through the pserver
    service and running under a remote user id.  It is not yet clear if
    the remote account can be exposed, through.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 1.10.7-9 for the stable Debian
    distribution and in version newer than 1.11.1p1debian-3 for the
    testing and unstable distribution of Debian (not yet uploaded,
    though).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your CVS package.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
