SUSE Linux Security Vulnerability: CVE-2012-0814

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
4 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:P/I:N/A:N) January 27, 2012 December 12, 2013 July 04, 2017

Description

The auth_parse_options function in auth-options.c in sshd in OpenSSH before 5.7 provides debug messages containing authorized_keys command options, which allows remote authenticated users to obtain potentially sensitive information by reading these messages, as demonstrated by the shared user account required by Gitolite. NOTE: this can cross privilege boundaries because a user account may intentionally have no shell or filesystem access, and therefore may have no supported way to read an authorized_keys file in its own home directory.
