Description

Updated openssh packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7 and 7.1. These packages fix a vulnerability which may allow unauthorized users to log in from hosts that have been denied access. 2001-10-22: Pacakges are now available for Red Hat Linux 7.2.

If a user lists multiple keys in her .ssh/authorized_keys2 file, sshd may in some circumstances not honor the "from" option which can be associated with a key, thereby allowing key-based logins from hosts which should not be allowed access.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-openssh
  • redhat-upgrade-openssh-askpass
  • redhat-upgrade-openssh-askpass-gnome
  • redhat-upgrade-openssh-clients
  • redhat-upgrade-openssh-server
