Description

The RAND_bytes function in libssh before 0.6.3, when forking is enabled, does not properly reset the state of the OpenSSL pseudo-random number generator (PRNG), which causes the state to be shared between children processes and allows local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging a pid collision.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libssh-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libssh-devel-doc
  • suse-upgrade-libssh2
  • suse-upgrade-libssh4
  • suse-upgrade-libssh4-32bit
