[slackware-security]  OpenSSH Security Advisory (SSA:2003-259-01)

Upgraded OpenSSH packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0 and
- -current.  These fix a buffer management error found in versions of
OpenSSH earlier than 3.7.  The possibility exists that this error
could allow a remote exploit, so we recommend all sites running
OpenSSH upgrade to the new OpenSSH package immediately.


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Tue Sep 16 11:13:05 PDT 2003
patches/packages/openssh-3.7p1-i386-1.tgz:  Upgraded to openssh-3.7p1.
  From the OpenSSH Security Advisory
  (http://www.openssh.com/txt/buffer.adv):
      "All versions of OpenSSH's sshd prior to 3.7 contain a buffer
       management error.  It is uncertain whether this error is
       potentially exploitable, however, we prefer to see bugs
       fixed proactively."
  (* Security fix *)
