Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.52672
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-117-1 (cvs)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-117-1 (cvs)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to cvs
announced via advisory USN-117-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected: cvs

Details follow:

Alen Zukich discovered a buffer overflow in the processing of version
and author information in the CVS client. By tricking an user to
connect to a malicious CVS server, an attacker could exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the connecting user.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:1.12.9-1ubuntu0.1 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 1:1.12.9-9ubuntu0.1
(for Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
