From the LWN article (OpenSSH maintainer Damien Miller), its probably
not real, well just have to wait and see

I am worried that if it is an OpenSSH 0day how much damage should I expect. However SANS doesn't seem to think it's 
real.

Hi list,


I've been reading around (openssh mailing list, some forums, etc.) a
rumor about a 0-day exploit in openssh. Does anybody knows if there is
*really* something like this in the wild?


Cheers

This attack sounds more like a brute-force attack than a 0-day. You
can see it in the original post.

There's also the ominous anonymous comment left by a fellow on a blog:
http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=6742

The significant stuff: "Expect the SSH exploit to be made public
before BH/DC. I have proof that I can't share (sorry), that this
exploit does exist, does not work against current versions of SSH, and
is actively being used by members of the anti-sec movement."

Signs seem to be pointing to hoax, old exploit or non-exploit, though.
Unfortunately there's really not quite enough information to make an
assessment yet, IMHO.
