Debian DLA-1218-1 : rsync security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 105425
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral vulnerabilities were discovered in rsync, a fast, versatile, remote (and local) file-copying tool, allowing a remote attacker to bypass intended access restrictions or cause a denial of service.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.9-4+deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your rsync packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected rsync package.
