CVS (Concurrent Version System) is a version control system.

An insecure temporary file usage was found in the cvsbug program.  It is
possible that a local user could leverage this issue to execute arbitrary
instructions as the user running cvsbug.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2005-2693 to this issue.

All users of cvs should upgrade to this updated package, which includes a
patch to correct this issue.
