Description

The remote host seems to be running cvstrac, a web-based bug and patch-set tracking system for CVS.

This version contains a flaw related to *.db files that may allow an attacker to gain access to plaintext passwords.

* Nessus has determined the vulnerability exists on the target simply by looking at the version number(s) of CVSTrac ** installed there.
