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.
