This release fixes a major security vulnerability in CVS. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CAN-2003-0015 to this issue.

Project description:
CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions
of files (usually source code), keep a log of who, when, and why
changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS. Unlike the simpler systems,
CVS does not just operate on one file at a time or one directory at a
time, but operates on hierarchical collections of directories
consisting of version controlled files. CVS helps to manage releases
and to control the concurrent editing of source files among multiple
authors. CVS allows triggers to enable/log/control various operations
and works well over a wide area network.
