Package        : dropbear
Version        : 2018.76-5+deb10u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2021-36369

An issue was discovered in Dropbear, a relatively small SSH server and
client. Due to a non-RFC-compliant check of the available authentication
methods in the client-side SSH code, it was possible for an SSH server
to change the login process in its favor. This attack can bypass
additional security measures such as FIDO2 tokens or SSH-Askpass. Thus,
it allows an attacker to abuse a forwarded agent for logging on to
another server unnoticed.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version
2018.76-5+deb10u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your dropbear packages.
