    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-15473
    Debian Bug     : 906236
    
    Dariusz Tytko, Michal Sajdak and Qualys Security discovered that
    OpenSSH, an implementation of the SSH protocol suite, was prone to a
    user enumeration vulnerability. This would allow a remote attacker to
    check whether a specific user account existed on the target server.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:7.4p1-10+deb9u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssh packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of openssh please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
