Debian: New openssh packages fix denial of service

    Date 15 Nov 2006
    4434
    Posted By LinuxSecurity Advisories
    Two denial of service vulnerabilities have been found in the OpenSSH server. CVE-2006-4924: The sshd support for ssh protcol version 1 does not properly handle duplicate incoming blocks. This could allow a remote attacker to cause sshd to consume significant CPU resources leading to a denial of service. CVE-2006-5051: A signal handler race condition could potentially allow a remote attacker to crash sshd and could theoretically lead to the ability to execute arbitrary code.

    Two denial of service vulnerabilities have been found in the OpenSSH
    server.
    
    CVE-2006-4924
    	The sshd support for ssh protcol version 1 does not properly
    	handle duplicate incoming blocks.  This could allow a remote
    	attacker to cause sshd to consume significant CPU resources
    	leading to a denial of service.
    
    CVE-2006-5051
    	A signal handler race condition could potentially allow a remote
    	attacker to crash sshd and could theoretically lead to the
    	ability to execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:3.8.1p1-8.sarge.6
    
    For the unstable and testing distributions, these problems have been
    fixed in version 1:4.3p2-4
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openssh package.
