===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-117-1               May 04, 2005
cvs vulnerability
CAN-2005-0753
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

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

The following packages are affected:

cvs

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.

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.
