Description

The hash_buffer function in schnorr.c in OpenSSH through 6.4, when Makefile.inc is modified to enable the J-PAKE protocol, does not initialize certain data structures, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or have unspecified other impact via vectors that trigger an error condition.

Solution(s)

  • hpux-update-secure_shell-secsh-cmn
  • hpux-update-secure_shell-secure_shell
