1. Problem Description

        There is a locally exploitable vulnerability in the cvsd
program.

2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System Package
        
----------------------------------------------------------------------

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server prior to cvs-1.11-8.i386.rpm
                                        prior to
cvs-doc-ps-1.11-8.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation prior to cvs-1.11-8.i386.rpm
                                        prior to
cvs-doc-ps-1.11-8.i386.rpm

        OpenLinux 3.1 Server prior to cvs-1.11-8.i386.rpm

3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
        customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater,
called
        cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
        packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
