The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
Rsync before 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running a
read/write daemon without using chroot. This could allow a remote
attacker to write files outside of the module's 'path', depending on
the privileges assigned to the rsync daemon. Users not running an
rsync daemon, running a read-only daemon, or running a chrooted daemon
are not affected by this issue. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0426
to this issue.
Updated packages were made available in June 2004 however the original
update notification email did not make it to fedora-announce-list at
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
