Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA106] DSA-106-2 rsync

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-106-2 rsync

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Sebastian Krahmer found several places in rsync (a popular tool to synchronise files between machines)
where signed and unsigned numbers
were mixed which resulted in insecure code (see href="http://online.securityfocus.com/bid/3958">securityfocus.com).
This could be abused by
remote users to write 0-bytes in rsync's memory and trick rsync into
executing arbitrary code.

This has been fixed in version 2.3.2-1.3 and we recommend you upgrade
your rsync package immediately.
Unfortunately the patch used to fix that problem broke rsync.
This has been fixed in version 2.3.2-1.5 and we recommend you
upgrade to that version immediately.
