The remote host is missing an update to rsync
announced via advisory MDVSA-2008:011.
rsync before 3.0.0pre6, when running a writable rsync daemon that is
not using chroot, allows remote attackers to access restricted files
via unknown vectors that cause rsync to create a symlink that points
outside of the module's hierarchy. (CVE-2007-6199)
Unspecified vulnerability in rsync before 3.0.0pre6, when running a
writable rsync daemon, allows remote attackers to bypass exclude,
exclude_from, and filter and read or write hidden files via (1)
symlink, (2) partial-dir, (3) backup-dir, and unspecified (4) dest
This update fixes these issues. It is recommended users (specially
system and network administrators) read the manpage about the
introduced munge symlinks feature.

Linux versions earlier than 2008.0.
