Description

The client for CVS before 1.11.15 allows a remote malicious CVS server to create arbitrary files using certain RCS diff files that use absolute pathnames during checkouts or updates.

Updated packages were made available in April 2004 however the original update notification email did not make it to fedora-announce-list at that time.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
