Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : rsync (MDKSA-2004:042)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 14141
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionRsync before 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running a read/write daemon without using chroot, allows remote attackers to write files outside of the module's path.
The updated packages provide a patched rsync to correct this problem.
SolutionUpdate the affected rsync package.
