    openssh vulnerability
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 13.10
    OpenSSH could be made to run programs if it received specially crafted
    network traffic from an authenticated user.
    Software Description:
    - openssh: secure shell (SSH) client, for secure access to remote machines
    Markus Friedl discovered that OpenSSH incorrectly handled memory when the
    AES-GCM cipher was used. A remote authenticated attacker could use this
    issue to execute arbitrary code as their user, possibly bypassing
    shell or command restrictions.
    Update instructions:
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    Ubuntu 13.10:
      openssh-server                  1:6.2p2-6ubuntu0.1
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
