GLSA-200803-29 : ViewVC: Multiple vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31635
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200803-29 (ViewVC: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple unspecified errors were reportedly fixed by the ViewVC development team.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted URL to the server to list CVS or SVN commits on 'all-forbidden' files, access hidden CVSROOT folders, and view restricted content via the revision view, the log history, or the diff view.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll ViewVC users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-apps/viewvc-1.0.5'
