Trustix: 'rsync' Security update

Author: JT Smith

Trustix: "This update fixes the signed/unsigned remote exploit bug in rsync. In previous releases the rsync program contained several bugs which would allow remote attackers to write 0-bytes to almost arbitrary stack-locations, thus giving them control over the programflow so that they could obtain a shell remotely."
