CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Technical Details:
The following Linux Distribution Package is affected: cvs+ipv6 CVE-2004-0414 CVS 1.12.x through 1.12.8, and 1.11.x through 1.11.16, does not properly handle malformed 'Entry' lines, which prevents a NULL terminator from being used and may lead to a denial of service (crash), modification of critical program data, or arbitrary code execution. CVE-2004-0416 Double-free vulnerability for the error_prog_name string in CVS 1.12.x through 1.12.8, and 1.11.x through 1.11.16, may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code. CVE-2004-0417 Integer overflow in the 'Max-dotdot' CVS protocol command (serve_max_dotdot) for CVS 1.12.x through 1.12.8, and 1.11.x through 1.11.16, may allow remote attackers to cause a server crash, which could cause temporary data to remain undeleted and consume disk space. CVE-2004-0418 serve_notify in CVS 1.12.x through 1.12.8, and 1.11.x through 1.11.16, does not properly handle empty data lines, which may allow remote attackers to perform an 'out-of-bounds' write for a single byte to execute arbitrary code or modify critical program data. CVE-2004-0778 CVS 1.11.x before 1.11.17, and 1.12.x before 1.12.9, allows remote attackers to determine the existence of arbitrary files and directories via the -X command for an alternate history file, which causes different error messages to be returned.

Recommendations:
Update your system with the appropriate patches or software upgrades.

Summary:

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
