    Package        : libssh
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0017
    
    It was discovered that libssh, a tiny C SSH library, did not reset the
    state of the PRNG after accepting a connection. A server mode
    application that forks itself to handle incoming connections could see
    its children sharing the same PRNG state, resulting in a cryptographic
    weakness and possibly the recovery of the private key.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.4.5-3+squeeze2.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.5.4-1+deb7u1.
