The rsync-team released an advisory about a security problem in rsync. If rsync is running in daemon-mode and without a chroot environment it is possible for a remote attacker to trick rsyncd into creating an absolute pathname while sanitizing it. As a result it is possible to read/write from/to files outside the rsync directory.
SUSE Linux ships the rsync daemon with a chroot environment enabled by default, therefore the default setup is not vulnerable.
With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
