Description

Several buffer management coding errors have been discovered in the OpenSSH code. These coding errors may introduce a security vulnerability, although no known exploit is currently available. Current assessment of the errors indicates that any vulnerability would most likely be limited to a denial-of-service (DoS) attack against a system running affected OpenSSH code. However, it is conceivable that this vulnerability could be used to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the ssh or sshd program.
