|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'openssh'; package(s) announced via the openSUSE-SU-2018:3801_1 advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'openssh'
package(s) announced via the openSUSE-SU-2018:3801_1 advisory.
This update for openssh fixes the following issues:
- CVE-2018-15919: Remotely observable behaviour in auth-gss2.c in OpenSSH
could be used by remote attackers to detect existence of users on a
target system when GSS2 is in use. OpenSSH developers do not want to
treat such a username enumeration (or 'oracle') as a vulnerability.
- CVE-2018-15473: OpenSSH was prone to a user existence oracle
vulnerability due to not delaying bailout for an invalid authenticating
user until after the packet containing the request has been fully
parsed, related to auth2-gss.c, auth2-hostbased.c, and auth2-pubkey.c.
The following non-security issues were fixed:
- Stop leaking File descriptors (bsc#964336)
- sftp-client.c returns wrong error code upon failure (bsc#1091396)
- added pam_keyinit to pam configuration file (bsc#1081947)
This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15:Update update project.
