Vulnerability Assessment Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- openssh-client
- openssh-server
- ssh
- ssh-askpass-gnome


Description :

An information disclosure vulnerability has been found in the SSH
server. When the GSSAPIAuthentication option was enabled, the SSH
server could send GSSAPI credentials even to users who attempted to
log in with a method other than GSSAPI. This could inadvertently
expose these credentials to an untrusted user.

SSH server.
