rsync vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

rsync could be made to crash or run programs if it received specially
crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- rsync: fast, versatile, remote (and local) file-copying tool

Details:

Danilo Ramos discovered that rsync incorrectly handled memory when
performing certain zlib deflating operations. An attacker could use this
issue to cause rsync to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:
