CAN-2004-0175 malicious rsh server can cause rcp to write to arbitrary files

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #120147 +++
Back in 2000 it was reported that a malicious ssh server could cause
scp to write to arbitrary files outside of the current directory.

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:
This issue should also affect FC3
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
