Pending vulnerabilities in SUSE Distributions and Workarounds:
rsync prior to version 2.6.1 does not properly sanitize paths when running as read/write daemon without chroot. New update packages are available on our ftp servers which fix this problem.
This is about rsync-2.6.2-8.2, right?
I've updated using YOU and now am not able to rsync large directories:
rsync -av --delete /home/* /home.backup/ building file list ... done rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes read so far) rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(342)
The version shipped with 9.1 works just fine with the same directories.
Was this update rushed in? Any fixes?
