(Correction) SECURITY: New rsync packages available



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----


A number of subscribers pointed out the obvious error in the previous
announcement for rsync - the fact that I posted the links for procmail
packages instead. While the late, late night hour I am posting this might
have something to do with it :-), I do apologize for any inconvenience
caused. Now that I have the brown paper bag over my head, here is the
correct update:

 * * * 
Potential security problems have been identified in the rsync package
shipped with Red Hat Linux 5.2. A user can not exploit this hole
deliberately to gain privileges (ie. this is not an "active" security hole)
but a system administrator could easily be caught by the bug and
inadvertently compromise the security of their system.

Red Hat would like to thank Andrew Tridgel for providing an update that
fixed the problem.

Users of Red Hat Linux are recommended to upgrade to the new packages
available under updates directory on our ftp site:

Red Hat Linux 5.2:
==================

alpha:
rpm -Uvh ftp://updates.redhat.com/5.2/alpha/rsync-2.3.1-0.alpha.rpm

i386:
rpm -Uvh ftp://updates.redhat.com/5.2/i386/rsync-2.3.1-0.i386.rpm
