FreeBSD : rsync -- incremental recursion memory corruption vulnerability (9a777c23-b310-11e0-832d-00215c6a37bb)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55633
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
Descriptionrsync 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
