[slackware-security]  cvs security update (SSA:2004-108-02)

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.


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Sat Apr 17 14:09:23 PDT 2004
patches/packages/cvs-1.11.15-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to cvs-1.11.15.
  Fixes two security problems (server creating arbitrary files on a client
  machine, and client viewing files outside of the CVS repository).
