    Package: cvsweb
    Vulnerability type: remote shell
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The versions of cvsweb distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 (aka slink) as
    well as in the frozen (potato) and unstable (woody) distributions, are
    vulnerable to a remote shell exploit. An attacker with write access to the
    cvs repository can execute arbitrary code on the server, as the www-data
    user.
    
    The vulnerability is fixed in version 109 of cvsweb for the current stable
    release (Debian 2.1), in version 1.79-3potato1 for the frozen distribution,
    and in version 1.86-1 for the unstable distribution.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
