Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2005-858: openssh

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the openssh package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-858 (openssh).

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's SSH (Secure SHell) protocol implementation. SSH
replaces rlogin and rsh, to provide secure encrypted communications
between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections
and arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure
channel. Public key authentication may be used for 'passwordless'
access to servers.

This package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH
client and server. To make this package useful, you should also
install openssh-clients, openssh-server, or both.

Update Information:

This security update fixes CVE-2005-2798 and resolves a
problem with X forwarding binding only on IPv6 address on
certain circumstances.
