Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: rsync
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:083
Date: August 17th, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
Multi Network Firewall 8.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

An advisory was sent out by the rsync team regarding a security vulnerability in all versions of rsync prior to and including 2.6.2. If rsync is running in daemon mode, and not in a chrooted environment, it is possible for a remote attacker to trick rsyncd into creating an absolute pathname while sanitizing it. This vulnerability allows a remote attacker to possibly read/write to/from files outside of the rsync directory.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
