    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0180 CAN-2004-0405
    
    Two vulnerabilities have been discovered and fixed in CVS:
    
     CAN-2004-0180 - Sebastian Krahmer discovered a vulnerability whereby
     a malicious CVS pserver could create arbitary files on the client
     system during an update or checkout operation, by supplying absolute
     pathnames in RCS diffs.
    
     CAN-2004-0405 - Derek Robert Price discovered a vulnerability whereby
     a CVS pserver could be abused by a malicious client to view the
     contents of certain files outside of the CVS root directory using
     relative pathnames containing "../".
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
    fixed in version 1.11.1p1debian-9woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you update your cvs package.
