The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
A memory corruption flaw was found in the way the rsync client
processed malformed file list data. If an rsync client used the
'--recursive' and '--delete' options without the '--owner' option when
connecting to a malicious rsync server, the malicious server could
cause rsync on the client system to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running rsync.
We would like to thank Wayne Davison and Matt McCutchen for reporting
