Description

According to the versions of the rsync package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • The parse_arguments function in options.c in rsyncd in rsync before 3.1.3 does not prevent multiple --protect-args uses, which allows remote attackers to bypass an argument-sanitization protection mechanism.(CVE-2018-5764)

  • The receive_xattr function in xattrs.c in rsync 3.1.2 and 3.1.3-development does not check for a trailing
