Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:190
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:190.

CVS is a version control system frequently used to manage source code
repositories.

Stefan Esser discovered a flaw in cvs where malformed Entry
lines could cause a heap overflow. An attacker who has access to a CVS
server could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code under the UID which
the CVS server is executing. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0396 to this issue.

Users of CVS are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains
a backported patch correcting this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Stefan Esser for notifying us of this issue and
Derek Price for providing an updated patch.
