Subject: CVE Request: rsync denial of service

Hello,

Ryan Finnie discovered that rsync 3.1.0 contains a denial of service issue when
attempting to authenticate using a nonexistent username. A remote attacker could
use this flaw to cause a denial of service via CPU consumption.

Bug reports:
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10551
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rsync/+bug/1307230

Fix:
https://git.samba.org/?p=rsync.git;a=commitdiff;h=0dedfbce2c1b851684ba658861fe9d620636c56a


Could a CVE please be assigned to this issue?

Thanks,

Marc.
