  Brian Caswell from Sourcefire discovered [0] vulnerabilities in OSSP
  Shiela [1], a CVS repository access control and logging extension.
  The vulnerabilities allow arbitrary code execution during CVS file
  commits if a filename is specially crafted to contain shell commands.
  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project assigned the id
  CVE-2006-3633 [2] to the problem.

  Notice: OSSP shiela might be installed as a _copy_ into your CVSROOT
  area. If this is the case please do not forget to update this copy
  after updating the OpenPKG "shiela" package.
