Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201810-10
=========================================
Severity: Critical
Date    : 2018-10-17
CVE-ID  : CVE-2018-10933
Package : libssh
Type    : authentication bypass
Remote  : Yes
Link    : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-780

Summary
======
The package libssh before version 0.8.4-1 is vulnerable to
authentication bypass.

Resolution
=========
Upgrade to 0.8.4-1.

# pacman -Syu "libssh>=0.8.4-1"

The problem has been fixed upstream in version 0.8.4.

Workaround
=========
None.

Description
==========
An authentication bypass vulnerability has been discovered in libssh
versions prior to 0.7.6 and 0.8.4, in the server-side state machine. By
presenting the server an SSH2_MSG_USERAUTH_SUCCESS message in place of
the SSH2_MSG_USERAUTH_REQUEST message which the server would expect to
initiate authentication, the attacker could successfully authenticate
without any credentials, resulting in unauthorized access.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker is able to successfully authenticate without any
credentials, resulting in unauthorized access.
