Developers issue OpenSSH alert
Yesterday, Theo de Raadt, lead developer for OpenSSH, a free tool that many administrators use as a secure alternative to Telnet and FTP, announced a significant remotely exploitable vulnerability.
Even version 3.3 of OpenSSH, released only days ago, is vulnerable.
But de Raadt has not announced the finer points of the vulnerability because a patch has to yet be made available.
He insisted that details would be released on Thursday to give distributors time to get updated versions of the tool together before hackers get their hands on exploit code.
