Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'rsync' package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2018:0117-1 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
This update for rsync fixes the following issues:
Security issues fixed:
- CVE-2017-17434: The daemon in rsync did not check for fnamecmp filenames
in the daemon_filter_list data structure (in the recv_files function in
receiver.c) and also did not apply the sanitize_paths protection
mechanism to pathnames found in 'xname follows' strings (in the
read_ndx_and_attrs function in rsync.c), which allowed remote attackers
to bypass intended access restrictions' (bsc#1071460).
- CVE-2017-17433: The recv_files function in receiver.c in the daemon in
rsync, proceeded with certain file metadata updates before checking for
a filename in the daemon_filter_list data structure, which allowed
remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions (bsc#1071459).
- CVE-2017-16548: The receive_xattr function in xattrs.c in rsync did not
check for a trailing '\\0' character in an xattr name, which allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer
over-read and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other
impact by sending crafted data to the daemon (bsc#1066644).

Affected Software/OS:
'rsync' package(s) on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11-SP4, SUSE Linux Enterprise Debuginfo 11-SP4
