Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2006:008: 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 SUSE-SA:2006:008 (openssh).


A problem in the handling of scp in openssh could be used to execute
commands on remote hosts even using a scp-only configuration.

This requires doing a remote-remote scp and a hostile server. (CVE-2006-0225)

On SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 the xauth pollution problem was fixed too.

The security fix changes the handling of quoting filenames which might
break automated scripts using this functionality.

Please check that your automated scp scripts still work after the
update.
