Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55232
Category:FreeBSD Local Security Checks
Title:FreeBSD Security Advisory (FreeBSD-SA-05:20.cvsbug.asc)
Summary:FreeBSD Security Advisory (FreeBSD-SA-05:20.cvsbug.asc)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to the system
as announced in the referenced advisory FreeBSD-SA-05:20.cvsbug.asc

cvsbug(1) is a utility for reporting problems in the CVS revision
control system. It is based on the GNATS send-pr(1) utility.

A temporary file is created, used, deleted, and then re-created with
the same name. This creates a window during which an attacker could
replace the file with a link to another file.

While cvsbug(1) is based on the send-pr(1) utility, this problem does
not exist in the version of send-pr(1) distributed with FreeBSD.

Solution:
Upgrade your system to the appropriate stable release
or security branch dated after the correction date
