Vulnerability Assessment Details

FreeBSD Ports : rsync < 2.6.2_2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the rsync package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host has an old version of rsync installed.

There is a flaw in this version of rsync which, due to an input validation
error, would permit a remote attacker to gain access to the remote system.

A possible hacker, exploiting this flaw, would need network access to the TCP port.

Successful exploitation requires that the rsync daemon is *not* running chroot.
