Mandriva Linux Advisory MDKA-2007:127
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : openssh-askpass-qt
Date : December 11, 2007
Affected: 2007.0, 2007.1, 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

The QT openssh password asking dialog, provided by openssh-askpass-qt
package, would always exit with successful status (0), even when
the user did not press the Ok button. This would, at least, make the
openssh client always allow sharing a connection when ControlMaster
option was set to ask.

This update fixes the issue.
