    USN-612-2 introduced protections for OpenSSH, related to the OpenSSL vulnerabilities addressed by USN-612-1. This update provides the corresponding updates for OpenSSH in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. While the OpenSSL in Ubuntu 6.06 is not vulnerable, this update will block weak keys generated on systems that may have been affected themselves. Original advisory details:

    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-612-7               May 20, 2008
    openssh update
    CVE-2008-0166
    ===========================================================
    
    A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:
    
    Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
    
    This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
    Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.
    
    The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
    following package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
      openssh-server                  1:4.2p1-7ubuntu3.4
    
    In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the

    Details follow:
    
    USN-612-2 introduced protections for OpenSSH, related to the OpenSSL
    vulnerabilities addressed by USN-612-1.  This update provides the
    corresponding updates for OpenSSH in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS.  While the OpenSSL
    in Ubuntu 6.06 is not vulnerable, this update will block weak keys
    generated on systems that may have been affected themselves.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     A weakness has been discovered in the random number generator used
     by OpenSSL on Debian and Ubuntu systems.  As a result of this
     weakness, certain encryption keys are much more common than they
     should be, such that an attacker could guess the key through a
     brute-force attack given minimal knowledge of the system.  This
     particularly affects the use of encryption keys in OpenSSH, OpenVPN
     and SSL certificates.
