Title:RedHat Update for rsync RHSA-2011:0390-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'rsync'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'rsync'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
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.

Affected Software/OS:
rsync on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
