Debian: New cvs packages fix arbitrary code execution

Stefan Esser discovered a problem in cvs, a concurrent versions system, which is used for many Free Software projects. The current version contais a flaw that can be used by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the CVS server under the user id the CVS server runs as. Anonymous read-only access is sufficient to exploit this problem. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.
