Earlier, bugtraq was told that all ssh versions including openssh
automatically tunnel X.
This is not correct. openssh has that turned off by default.
I suspect that some clarification on your point is required, as it is
accurate only as of a recent commit to the OpenBSD CVS source repository
(Mon, 28 Feb 2000 12:52:01 -0700 (MST)). For reference, I have attached
the cvs repo commit message. Users of OpenBSD may want to update to the
latest version of these files to avoid the security risks associated with
the poor OpenSSH default setting. Of course, this applies to all other
consumers of OpenSSH who have not updated their configurations.
