OpenSSH exploit

Hi there,

I am trying to exploit a vulnerable version of OpenSSH
(3.1p1) through challenge-response buffer overflow
(BID 5093). I have already checked it meets the
pre-requisites (keyboard-interactive is enabled).
I have compiled the modified version of the client as
explained in
But when it comes to run it (./ssh
root:skey () [SERVER]), the exploit doesn't work: it asks
for the password, as with the original version of ssh.
The target platform is Red Hat Linux. 

Has anyone sucessfully exploited this overflow in

Thanks in advance. Greetings,
