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.
