    Multiple unspecified errors were reportedly fixed by the ViewVC
    development team.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    A remote attacker could send a specially crafted URL to the server to
    list CVS or SVN commits on "all-forbidden" files, access hidden CVSROOT
    folders, and view restricted content via the revision view, the log
    history, or the diff view.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All ViewVC users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-apps/viewvc-1.0.5&quot;</code>
  </resolution>
