    Package        : rsync
    Vulnerability  : directory traversal
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0426
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in rsync, a file transfer program,
    whereby a remote user could cause an rsync daemon to write files
    outside of the intended directory tree.  This vulnerability is not
    exploitable when the daemon is configured with the 'chroot' option.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 2.5.5-0.4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you update your rsync package.
