Fedora Core 4 : rsync-2.6.8-1.FC4 (2006-601)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

- Fri May 26 2006 Jay Fenlason <fenlason at redhat.com>

- Upgrade to 2.6.8, which closes bz#190208 CVE-2006-2083
rsync buffer overflow issue by switching from my
xattrs patch to the upstream one. This also obsoletes
the -address patch.

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.
