Description Vítězslav Čížek 2014-04-15 15:04:08 UTC
From http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2014/04/15/1:

> rsync 3.1.0 contains a denial of service issue

> a remote client can send an invalid username and cause an infinite CPU
> loop on the server child process.
> The server master process is unaffected, allowing the remote client to
> do this multiple times toward system-wide denial of service.

> Wayne Davison 2014-04-13 21:14:04 UTC
> I've committed a fix for this into git for release in 3.1.1.
