Debian Security Advisory                             security@debian.org

Package: cvsweb
Vulnerability type: remote shell
Debian-specific: no

The versions of cvsweb distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 (aka slink) as well as in the frozen (potato) and unstable (woody) distributions, are vulnerable to a remote shell exploit. An attacker with write access to the cvs repository can execute arbitrary code on the server, as the www-data user.

The vulnerability is fixed in version 109 of cvsweb for the current stable release (Debian 2.1), in version 1.79-3potato1 for the frozen distribution, and in version 1.86-1 for the unstable distribution.
