  • I'm way into using CVSROOT=:ext:user@host:/path/to/repos CVS_RSH=ssh. It's easier to set up than pserver, and probably more secure. I'm pretty sure you could set up an account with no login shell and only read-only access to the repository files and make it work. (But I've never tried it, so YMWV.)

    I hope no damage was done. Maybe the guy didn't know what he was doing and just did all that accidentally (hence the log message)? (Or was just trying something out to see if it would work, as opposed to trying to crack into your box.)

    • I'm considering dropping pserver. I allow it only for anonymous access right now, because people like to follow my projects, and I also prefer people to submit patches against current CVS.

      But if it's going to be a security risk then I'll just kill that.
