I believe this one was meant to be CVE-2012-2252...

Yes, sorry for that, I reformated the advisory at the last minute and
did a wrong copy/pasteā€¦

    Incorrect filtering of the "--rsh" option: the filter preventing usage of the
    "--rsh=" option would not prevent passing "--rsh". This vulnerability affects
    upstream code.

I've uploaded rssh-2.3.4 to the project's web page, as well as to
sourceforge.  This update includes the fix for CVE-2012-2252, and also
rolls up a fix for CVE-2012-3478, for which I had previously only
posted a patch.  Additionally there are some mostly trivial updates
for code and build clean-up.

Thank you for your time and help on this, it was a pleasure working with
