Mageia Linux Local Security Checks mgasa-2015-0295

Vulnerability Insight:
The OpenSSH server, when keyboard-interactive challenge response authentication is enabled and PAM is being used (the default configuration in Mageia), can be tricked into allowing more password attempts than the MaxAuthTries setting would normally allow in one connection, which can aid an attacker in brute-force password guessing (CVE-2015-5600).

Update the affected packages to the latest available version.
