USN-566-1: OpenSSH vulnerability

9 January 2008

OpenSSH vulnerability




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.
