Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2004-269: rsync

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the rsync package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-269 (rsync).

Rsync uses a reliable algorithm to bring remote and host files into
sync very quickly. Rsync is fast because it just sends the differences
in the files over the network instead of sending the complete
files. Rsync is often used as a very powerful mirroring process or
just as a more capable replacement for the rcp command. A technical
report which describes the rsync algorithm is included in this
package.

Update Information:

This update backports a security fix to a path-sanitizing flaw that
affects rsync when it is used in daemon mode without also using
chroot.
