Updated rsh packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat EnterpriseLinux 7.

The rsh packages contain programs which allow users to run commands on remotemachines (the rsh application), log in to other machines (the rloginapplication), copy files between machines (the rcp application), and programswhich provide an alternate method of executing remote commands (the rexecapplication). All of these programs are run by the xinetd service and can beconfigured using the Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) system andconfiguration files in the /etc/xinetd.d/ directory.This update fixes the following bugs:* Prior to this update, the maximum number of command-line arguments for the rshapplication was not limited, even though the size of the data buffer allocatedto the arguments was always finite. Consequently, the rshd service terminatedunexpectedly when it attempted to allocate the buffer to commands with a vastnumber of arguments. With this update, a limit for command-line arguments in rshhas been implemented, and rshd no longer crashes in the described situation.(BZ#1093749)* Prior to this update, the rsh application was optimized throughstrict-aliasing rules, even though it was not a performance-sensitiveapplication. As a consequence, the GNU compiler collection (GCC) generatedwarning messages about breaking the strict-aliasing rules, despite correctfunctionality being the priority for rsh. With this update, strict aliasing hasbeen disabled for rsh. Therefore, GCC now ignores the strict-aliasing rules andno longer produces warning messages. However, note that this can cause a slightdecrease in rsh performance. (BZ#1095306)Users of rsh are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix thesebugs.
