MDKSA-2004:042: 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 MDKSA-2004:042 (rsync).


Rsync before 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running a read/write
daemon without using chroot, permits remote attackers to write files outside of
the module's path.
The updated packages provide a patched rsync to correct this problem.
