[USN-34-1] OpenSSH information leakage

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-34-1           November 30, 2004
openssh information leakage
CAN-2003-0190
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

openssh-server

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:3.8.1p1-11ubuntu3.1.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

@Mediaservice.net discovered two information leaks in the OpenSSH
server. When using password authentication, an attacker could
test whether a login name exists by measuring the time between
failed login attempts, i. e. the time after which the "password:"
prompt appears again.

A similar issue affects systems which do not allow root logins over
ssh ("PermitRootLogin no"). By measuring the time between login
attempts an attacker could check whether a given root password is
correct. This allowed determining weak root passwords using a brute
force attack.
