Description

rssh 2.2.2 and earlier does not properly restrict programs that can be run, which could allow remote authenticated users to bypass intended access restrictions and execute arbitrary programs via (1) rdist -P, (2) rsync, or (3) scp -S.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-shells-rssh
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-net-misc-scponly
