During an audit of the CVS sources, Stefan Esser of
e-matters discovered an exploitable double-free bug in the CVS server.
On servers which are configured to allow anonymous read-only access, this
bug could be used by anonymous users to gain write privileges and execute
arbitrary commands on the server.
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information

this bug report if the solution does not work for you.
