Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.58240
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0257
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0257.

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's SSH (Secure SHell) protocol implementation. This
package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH client and
server.

OpenSSH stores hostnames, IP addresses, and keys in plaintext in the
known_hosts file. A local attacker that has already compromised a user's
SSH account could use this information to generate a list of additional
targets that are likely to have the same password or key. (CVE-2005-2666)

The following bugs have also been fixed in this update:

* The ssh client could abort the running connection when the server
application generated a large output at once.

* When 'X11UseLocalhost' option was set to 'no' on systems with IPv6
networking enabled, the X11 forwarding socket listened only for IPv6
connections.

* When the privilege separation was enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config, some
log messages in the system log were duplicated and also had timestamps from
an incorrect timezone.

All users of openssh should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
