Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:083: 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-2004:083 (rsync).


An advisory was sent out by the rsync team regarding a security vulnerability in
all versions of rsync prior to and including 2.6.2. If rsync is running in
daemon mode, and not in a chrooted environment, it is possible for a remote
attacker to trick rsyncd into creating an absolute pathname while sanitizing it.
This vulnerability permits a remote attacker to possibly read/write to/from files
outside of the rsync directory.
The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
