SSA-2004-108-02 cvs security update Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
SSA-2004-108-02 cvs security update

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

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.
