GLSA-201702-05 : Lsyncd: Remote execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 97111
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201702-05 (Lsyncd: Remote execution of arbitrary code)
default-rsyncssh.lua in Lsyncd performed insufficient sanitising of filenames.
An attacker, able to control files processed by Lsyncd, could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Lsyncd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-admin/lsyncd-2.1.6'
