Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cvsweb (MDKSA-2000:019)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Cvsweb contains a hole that provides attackers who have write access
to a cvs repository with shell access. Thus, attackers who have write
access to a cvs repository but not shell access can obtain a shell. In
addition, anyone with write access to a cvs repository that is
viewable with cvsweb can get access to whatever user the cvsweb cgi
script runs as (typically nobody or www-data, etc.). This update
closes all of these possibly exploited pipe-opens.

Solution :

Update the affected cvsweb package.

Risk factor :

High
