Slackware 8.1 / 9.0 / 9.1 / current : cvs security update (SSA:2004-108-02)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

CVS is a client/server version control system. As a server, it is
used to host source code repositories. As a client, it is used to
access such repositories. This advisory affects both uses of CVS. A
security problem which could allow a server to create arbitrary files
on a client machine, and another security problem which may allow a
client to view files outside of the CVS repository have been fixed
with the release of cvs-1.11.15. Any sites running CVS should upgrade
to the new CVS package.
