    Package        : cvs
    Vulnerability  : serveral
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: yes
    CVE IDs        : CAN-2004-1342 CAN-2004-1343
    Debian Bug     : 260200
    Several problems have been discovered in the CVS server, which serves
    the popular Concurrent Versions System.  The Common Vulnerability and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
        Maks Polunin and Alberto Garcia discovered independently that
        using the pserver access method in connection with the repouid
        patch that Debian uses it is possible to bypass the password and
        gain access to the repository in question.
        Alberto Garcia discovered that a remote user can cause the cvs
        server to crash when the cvs-repouids file exists but does not
        contain a mapping for the current repository, which can be used as
        a denial of service attack.
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.11.1p1debian-10.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.12.9-11.
    We recommend that you upgrade your cvs package.
