1. Problem Description

	There is a locally exploitable vulnerability in the cvsd program.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

					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.
