PACKAGE   : openssh
SUMMARY   : OpenSSH vulnerability
DATE      : 2002-03-07 17:44:00
ID        : CLA-2002:467
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 5.0, prg graficos, ecommerce, 5.1, 6.0, 7.0

DESCRIPTION
 OpenSSH is a very popular and versatile tool that uses encrypted
 connections between hosts and is commonly used for remote
 administration.
 
 Joost Pol <joost () pine nl> discovered[1] a off-by-one bug in OpenSSH's
 channel code that could be used by an attacker with a local account
 on the victim's machine to obtain root privileges on that machine.
 Another scenario for this vulnerability is that of a malicious ssh
 server exploiting a vulnerable ssh client connecting to it.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all OpenSSH users upgrade their packages. The
 sshd service will be automatically restarted after the upgrade if it
 was already running at that time.
