DESCRIPTION:
Fedora has issued an update for rssh. This fixes a weakness, which
can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security
restrictions.

The weakness can be caused due to an error while handling certain
configurations, which could lead to the user bypassing the configured
chroot and getting default permissions to the filesystem.

SOLUTION:
Apply updated packages via the yum utility ("yum update rssh").
