EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : rsync (EulerOS-SA-2018-1049)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106777


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the rsync package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- The parse_arguments function in options.c in rsyncd in rsync before 3.1.3 does not prevent multiple
--protect-args uses, which allows remote attackers to bypass an argument-sanitization protection mechanism.(CVE-2018-5764)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected rsync package.
