Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69236
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0390
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
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.

Solution:
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
