Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:092: 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 MDKSA-2001:092 (openssh).


The new OpenSSH 3.0.2 fixes a vulnerability in the UseLogin option. By default,
Mandrake Linux does not enable UseLogin, but if the administrator enables it,
local users are able to pass environment variables to the login process. This
update also fixes a security hole in the KerberosV support that is present in
versions 2.9.9 and 3.0.0.
