EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : rsync (EulerOS-SA-2019-1659)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 126286


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- The recv_files function in receiver.c in the daemon in rsync 3.1.2, and 3.1.3-development before 2017-12-03, proceeds with certain file metadata updates before checking for a filename in the daemon_filter_list data structure, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions.(CVE-2017-17433)

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.
