Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2017-12-10 16:58:00 UTC
CVE-2017-17434 (
  The daemon in rsync 3.1.2, and 3.1.3-development before 2017-12-03, does not
  check for fnamecmp filenames in the daemon_filter_list data structure (in
  the recv_files function in receiver.c) and also does 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 allows remote
  attackers to bypass intended access restrictions.

CVE-2017-17433 (
  The recv_files function in receiver.c in the daemon in rsync 3.1.2, and
  3.1.3-development before 2017-12-03, proceeds with certain file metadata
  updates before checking for a filename in the daemon_filter_list data
  structure, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access
