Description

This update for rsync fixes one issues. This security issue was fixed :

  • CVE-2018-5764: The parse_arguments function in options.c did not prevent multiple --protect-args uses, which allowed remote attackers to bypass an argument-sanitization protection mechanism (bsc#1076503)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
