Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-495: rsh

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the rsh packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated rsh packages that fix a theoretical security issue are now
available.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team

The rsh package contains a set of programs that permit users to run
commands on remote machines, login to other machines, and copy files
between machines, using the rsh, rlogin, and rcp commands. All three of
these commands use rhosts-style authentication.

The rcp protocol permits a server to instruct a client to write to arbitrary
files outside of the current directory. This could potentially cause a
security issue if a user uses rcp to copy files from a malicious server.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0175 to this issue.

All users of rsh should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues.
