Vulnerability Assessment Details

SSA-2004-124-01 rsync update

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
SSA-2004-124-01 rsync update

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

New rsync packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, and -current to
fix a security issue. When running an rsync server without the chroot option
it is possible for a possible hacker to write outside of the permited directory.
Any sites running rsync in that mode should upgrade right away (and should
probably look into using the chroot option as well).
