It's pretty secure...  pserver isn't great, though, because its passwords are

sent over easily decryptable.  However for an anonymous or low security
cvs project then pserver is just fine.

There is next to no chance of anyone being able to break into your
system via cvs as long as your cvs passwords are different from your
user passwords (possibly not even if you make them the same.. if you're
behind a firewall I can't see how they could get in anyway).
