    Hajvan Sehic discovered several vulnerabilities in viewcvs, a utility for viewing CVS and Subversion repositories via HTTP. When exporting a repository as a tar archive the hide_cvsroot and forbidden settings were not honoured enough.

    Hajvan Sehic discovered several vulnerabilities in viewcvs, a utility
    for viewing CVS and Subversion repositories via HTTP.  When exporting
    a repository as a tar archive the hide_cvsroot and forbidden settings
    were not honoured enough.
    
    When upgrading the package for woody, please make a copy of your
    /etc/viewcvs/viewcvs.conf file if you have manually edited this file.
    Upon upgrade the debconf mechanism may alter it in a way so that
    viewcvs doesn't understand it anymore.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.2-4woody1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.9.2+cvs.1.0.dev.2004.07.28-1.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your viewcvs package.
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    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:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
