RHSA-2004-192: rsync

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the rsync packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated rsync package that fixes a directory traversal security flaw is
now available.

Rsync is a program for synchronizing files over a network.

Rsync before 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running a
read/write daemon without using chroot. This could permit a remote attacker
to write files outside of the module's "path", depending on the rights
assigned to the rsync daemon. Users not running an rsync daemon, running a
read-only daemon, or running a chrooted daemon are not affected by this
issue. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2004-0426 to this issue.

Users of Rsync are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch and is not affected by this issue.
