*** This bug has been split off bug 120147 for RHEL2.1***

Back in 2000 it was reported that a malicious ssh server could cause
scp to write to arbitrary files outside of the current directory. 

This is a valid behaviour of the rcp protocol.

The issue was rediscovered in Mar 2004 and discussed amongst OSS
vendors, with Markus Friedl from OpenBSD writing a proposed patch for
this issue but warned that it needed a lot of testing:
