MDKSA-2004:042: rsync Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the rsync package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:042 (rsync).
Rsync before 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running a read/write
daemon without using chroot, allows remote attackers to write files outside of
the module's path.
The updated packages provide a patched rsync to correct this problem.
