Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2004:026: 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 SUSE-SA:2004:026 (rsync).


The rsync-team released an advisory about a security problem in rsync.
If rsync is running in daemon-mode and without a chroot environment it
is possible for a remote attacker to trick rsyncd into creating an
absolute pathname while sanitizing it.

As a result it is possible to read/write from/to files outside the
rsync directory.

NOTE: SUSE LINUX ships the rsync daemon with a chroot environment enabled
by default, therefore the default setup is not vulnerable.
