 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:191
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : rsh
 Date    : September 11, 2008
 Affected: 2007.1, 2008.0, 2008.1, Corporate 3.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability in the rcp protocol was discovered that allows a
 server to instruct a client to write arbitrary files outside of the
 current directory, which could potentially be a security concern if
 a user used rcp to copy files from a malicious server (CVE-2004-0175).
 
 This issue was originally corrected in MDKSA-2005:100, but the patch
 had not been applied to the development tree, so released packages
 after that date did not have the fix applied.
 
 This update also corrects an issue where rexecd did not honor settings
 in /etc/security/limits if pam_limits was in use.
