Debian Security Advisory DSA-1212-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Noah Meyerhans

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : openssh (1:3.8.1p1-8.sarge.6)
Vulnerability : Denial of service
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2006-4924 CVE-2006-5051
BugTraq ID : 20216 20241
Debian Bug : 392428

Two denial of service vulnerabilities have been found in the OpenSSH
server.

CVE-2006-4924
The sshd support for ssh protcol version 1 does not properly
handle duplicate incoming blocks. This could allow a remote
attacker to cause sshd to consume significant CPU resources
leading to a denial of service.

CVE-2006-5051
A signal handler race condition could potentially allow a remote
attacker to crash sshd and could theoretically lead to the
ability to execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:3.8.1p1-8.sarge.6

For the unstable and testing distributions, these problems have been
fixed in version 1:4.3p2-4

We recommend that you upgrade your openssh package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian 3.1 (stable)
- -------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, m68k, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
