Package        : cvs
Vulnerability  : heap overflow
Problem-Type   : remote

CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0396

Stefan Esser discovered a heap overflow in the CVS server, which
serves the popular Concurrent Versions System.  Malformed "Entry"
Lines in combination with Is-modified and Unchanged can be used to
overflow malloc()ed memory.  This was prooven to be exploitable.
