Fedora Core 1 : rsync-2.5.7-5.fc1.1 (2004-268)
High Nessus Plugin ID 14320
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update backports a security fix to a path-sanitizing flaw that affects rsync when it is used in daemon mode without also using chroot. For more information see http://samba.org/rsync/#security_aug04
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected rsync and / or rsync-debuginfo packages.
