USN-3506-1: rsync vulnerabilities

Severity

Medium

Vendor

Canonical Ubuntu

Versions Affected

  • Canonical Ubuntu 14.04

Description

It was discovered that rsync proceeds with certain file metadata updates before checking for a filename. An attacker could use this to bypass access restrictions. (CVE-2017-17433)

It was discovered that rsync does not check for fnamecmp filenames and also does not apply the sanitize_paths protection mechanism to pathnames. An attacker could use this to bypass access restrictions. (CVE-2017-17434)
