(rsync: Two buffer overflows)
Sebastian Krahmer from the SUSE Security Team discovered two off-by-one
errors in the function 'f_name()' in file sender.c when processing
overly long directory names.
A remote attacker could entice a user to synchronize a repository
containing specially crafted directories, leading to the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
