Fedora Core 2 : rsync-2.6.2-1.fc2.0 (2004-269)

High Nessus Plugin ID 14321


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This 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.


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