    Package        : openssh
    Problem type   : remote exploit
    Debian-specific: no
    The adv.fwd security advisory from OpenBSD reported a problem
    with openssh that Jacob Langseth <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> found: when
    the connection is established the remote ssh server can force
    the ssh client to enable agent and X11 forwarding.
    This has been fixed in version 1.2.3-9.1 and we recommend
    that you upgrade your openssh packages immediately.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
