Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

rsync development team reports :

Fixed a data-corruption issue when preserving hard-links without
preserving file ownership, and doing deletions either before or during
the transfer (CVE-2011-1097). This fixes some assert errors in the
hard-linking code, and some potential failed checksums (via -c) that
should have matched.
