Description Mark J. Cox 2004-03-19 09:48:46 EST
Sebastian Krahmer discovered a flaw in CVS clients where rcs diff
files can create files with absolute pathnames. An attacker could
create a fake malicious CVS server that would cause arbitrary files to
be created or overwritten when a victim connects to it. 

Embargoed; not sure on public date yet.  Possibly March 22nd or Apr 14th
or March 31st.
