    Package        : cvs
    Vulnerability  : insecure temporary files
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2693
    Debian Bug     : 325106
    
    Marcus Meissner discovered that the cvsbug program from CVS, which
    serves the popular Concurrent Versions System, uses temporary files in
    an insecure fashion.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.11.1p1debian-13.
    
    In the stable distribution (sarge) the cvs package does not expose the
    cvsbug program anymore.
    
    In the unstable distribution (sid) the cvs package does not expose the
    cvsbug program anymore.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cvs package.
