Package : lsh-utils
Vulnerability : buffer overflow, typo
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2003-0826 CAN-2005-0814
Debian Bug : 211662

Several security relevant problems have been discovered in lsh, the alternative secure shell v2 (SSH2) protocol server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:

CAN-2003-0826

Bennett Todd discovered a heap buffer overflow in lshd which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CAN-2005-0814

Niels Möller discovered a denial of service condition in lshd.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.5-2woody3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.1-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your lsh-server package.
