medium Nessus Plugin ID 55633
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


rsync development team reports :

Fixed a data-corruption issue when preserving hard-links without preserving file ownership, and doing deletions either before or during the transfer (CVE-2011-1097). This fixes some assert errors in the hard-linking code, and some potential failed checksums (via -c) that should have matched.


Update the affected package.
