USN-566-1: OpenSSH vulnerability

9 January 2008

OpenSSH vulnerability

Releases

Packages

Details

Jan Pechanec discovered that ssh would forward trusted X11 cookies when
untrusted cookie generation failed. This could lead to unintended privileges
being forwarded to a remote host.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 6.06

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
