SSA-2003-337-01 rsync security update Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
SSA-2003-337-01 rsync security update

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Rsync is a file transfer client and server.

A security problem which may lead to unauthorized machine access
or code execution has been fixed by upgrading to rsync-2.5.7.
This problem only affects machines running rsync in daemon mode,
and is easier to exploit if the non-default option "use chroot = no"
is used in the /etc/rsyncd.conf config file.

Any sites running an rsync server should upgrade immediately.
