Description


A vulnerability has been identified in rsync, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to an integer overflow in a memory handling routine, which can be exploited to cause a heap overflow by supplying an extremely large, specially crafted file.

Successful exploitation allows malicious people to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system with the privileges of the rsync server.

NOTE: This vulnerability has already been exploited to compromise servers on the Internet in combination with a Linux privilege escalation vulnerability.

See the following advisory for more information on the Linux privilege escalation vulnerability:
