Ok,  here is the exploit for SSH-1.2.27 compiled with RSAREF2.
It was tested against sshd running on Linux (Redhat 6.0) and OpenBSD
from a Linux Redhat 6.0 box.

The exploit is more or less "script-kid-proof" since if it doesnt work a
bit of
debugging, coding and probably crypto skills are needed to make it work.

Why was the code even posted to the list if it's basically useless?  I
wanted to check out my own machine with a working exploit, and I'm sure
most of the people that read this list wanted to do the same.  Now we're
going to have to wait for someone to take the time to "fix" your code up
and repost it to the list in working form.  Posting broken code that
anything beyond a trivial amount of work won't fix is just a waste of

the code was posted to the list because we are getting several tenths of
mails per day asking us to do so.
As far as how useless it is to you....
well it works for us, read the last part of my message carefully and you'll
understand why it 'broken' for you.
altho. it would really be helpfull if you elaborate on the matter...
not much..
just telling exactly  WHAT IS BROKEN SO IT CAN BE FIXED

i just reposted a diff as attachment since apparently my MUA wrapped
the original one.

another explanation for why its broken for you may be found if
one analyses the signatures in both of our mails.
btw, im CC: bugtraq, since you decide to post  to
the list instead of notifying us of our brokeness first.
bad bad bad evil crackers dont notify the vendors first!
