    collaborative development tool, performs insufficient escaping of URLs,
    which allows the execution of arbitrary shell commands with the privileges
    of the www-data user.
    
    The oldstable distribution (sarge) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.14-5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.5.14-6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gforge-plugin-scmcvs package.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions

    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:
