The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
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 an attacker to write outside of
the allowed directory. Any sites running rsync in that mode should
upgrade right away (and should probably look into using the chroot
option as well).
