A rsync update is available for Fedora Core 1

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 1
Name : rsync
Version : 2.5.7
Release : 5.fc1
Summary : A program for synchronizing files over a network.
Description :
Rsync uses a reliable algorithm to bring remote and host files into sync very quickly. Rsync is fast because it just sends the differences in the files over the network instead of sending the complete files. Rsync is often used as a very powerful mirroring process or just as a more capable replacement for the rcp command. A technical report which describes the rsync algorithm is included in this package.

Update Information:

Rsync before 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running a read/write daemon without using chroot. This could allow a remote attacker to write files outside of the module's "path", depending on the privileges assigned to the rsync daemon. Users not running an rsync daemon, running a read-only daemon, or running a chrooted daemon are not affected by this issue. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0426 to this issue.

Updated packages were made available in June 2004 however the original update notification email did not make it to fedora-announce-list at that time.
