[Outlook and Notes users, please ensure your Out Of Office messages are not sent in response to public mail lists. It is annoying. Thank you.] [Virus Scanner administrators: (a) GPG signatures are not an executable format; (b) as most virii forge From: and From_ headers, it makes no sense to rely on either header for error recovery purposes -- please configure your scanners to discard during the SMTP conversation instead. Thank you.] [TMDA users: Please whitelist public mail lists. Thank you.] ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Immunix Secured OS Security Advisory Packages updated: rsync Affected products: Immunix OS 7.3, 7+ Bugs fixed: CAN-2003-0962 Date: Fri Dec 5 2003 Advisory ID: IMNX-2003-73-001-01 Author: Seth Arnold <> ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Description: The rsync team has alerted us to a remotely exploitable heap overflow that is being actively exploited. As the overflow is on the heap, StackGuard offers no protection to this vulnerability. There are two methods this vulnerability could be exploited; the first is through a publicly visible rsync server, typically on TCP port 873. The second is through an ssh or rsh connection to the remote host. We would like to thank Timo Sirainen, Mike Warfield, Paul Russell, Andrea Barisani, Andrew Tridgell, and Martin Pool.
