Description

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

This version of filediff has a flaw in the input sanitation which, when exploited, can lead to a remote attacker executing arbitrary commands on the system.

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