Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in OpenSSH, the worst of which
could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.

Background
==========

OpenSSH is a complete SSH protocol implementation that includes SFTP
client and server support.

Affected packages
=================

     -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
   1  net-misc/openssh             < 8.5_p1                  >= 8.5_p1

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSH. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker, able to access the socket of the forwarding agent,
might be able to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker might conduct a man-in-the-middle attack
targeting initial connection attempts where no host key for the server
has been cached by client yet.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OpenSSH users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/openssh-8.5_p1"
