Fedora Core 1 : rsync-2.5.7-5.fc1 (2004-116)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 13695

Synopsis

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description

Rsync before 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running a read/write daemon without using chroot. This could allow a remote attacker to write files outside of the module's 'path', depending on the privileges assigned to the rsync daemon. Users not running an rsync daemon, running a read-only daemon, or running a chrooted daemon are not affected by this issue. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0426 to this issue.

Updated packages were made available in June 2004 however the original update notification email did not make it to fedora-announce-list at that time.

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.

Solution

Update the affected rsync and / or rsync-debuginfo packages.
