Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0390
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0390.

rsync is a program for synchronizing files over a network.

A memory corruption flaw was found in the way the rsync client processed
malformed file list data. If an rsync client used the --recursive and
--delete options without the --owner option when connecting to a
malicious rsync server, the malicious server could cause rsync on the
client system to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running rsync. (CVE-2011-1097)

Red Hat would like to thank Wayne Davison and Matt McCutchen for reporting
this issue.

Users of rsync should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to resolve this issue.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
