    Kobus van Schoor discovered that network-manager-ssh, a plugin to
    provide VPN integration for SSH in NetworkManager, is prone to a
    privilege escalation vulnerability. A local user with privileges to
    modify a connection can take advantage of this flaw to execute arbitrary
    commands as root.
    
    This update drops support to pass extra SSH options to the ssh
    invocation.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.2.1-1+deb9u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2.10-1+deb10u1.
