Description


Sebastian Krahmer has reported a vulnerability in rsync, which can potentially be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in version 2.6.9. Other versions may also be affected.
