GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200312-04
Quote from <http://ccvs.cvshome.org/servlets/NewsItemView?newsID=84>:
Stable CVS 1.11.10 has been released. Stable releases contain only bug fixes from previous versions of CVS. This release fixes a security issue with no known exploits that could cause previous versions of CVS to attempt to create files and directories in the filesystem root. This release also fixes several issues relevant to case insensitive filesystems and some other bugs. We recommend this upgrade for all CVS clients and servers!
All Gentoo Linux machines with cvs installed should be updated to use cvs-1.11.10 or higher.
