OpenSSH Regression Update for Debian 10

Debian Security Advisory DSA-4539-2 Salvatore Bonaccorso

Package : openssh
Debian Bug : 941663

A change introduced in openssl 1.1.1d (which got released as DSA 4539-1)
requires sandboxing features which are not available in Linux kernels
before 3.19, resulting in OpenSSH rejecting connection attempts if
running on an old kernel. This does not affect Linux kernels shipped in
Debian oldstable/stable, but may affect buster systems which are running
on an older kernel.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:7.9p1-10+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssh packages.
