I have released rsync 3.0.2. This is a security release to fix a potential buffer overflow in the extended attribute support. For more details, see the rsync security advisory page:
http://rsync.samba.org/security.html There is a patch there that can be applied to 2.6.9 (if you were using the xattrs.patch), 3.0.0, or 3.0.1. Those running a writable rsync daemon can opt to refuse the "xattrs" option in their daemon config to avoid the problem without an upgrade. I would like to thank Sebastian Krahmer for bringing this bug to my attention. To see the brief summary of the changes since 3.0.1, visit this link: http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/src/rsync-3.0.2-NEWS You can download the source tar file and its signature from here: http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/src/rsync-3.0.2.tar.gz http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/src/rsync-3.0.2.tar.gz.asc ..wayne..
