Package : libssh
Version : 0.8.7-1+deb10u2
CVE ID : CVE-2019-14889 CVE-2023-1667
Debian Bug : 946548 1035832

Two security issues have been discovered in libssh, a tiny C SSH
library, which may allows an remote authenticated user to cause a denial
of service or inject arbitrary commands.

CVE-2019-14889

A flaw was found with the libssh API function ssh_scp_new() in
versions before 0.9.3 and before 0.8.8. When the libssh SCP client
connects to a server, the scp command, which includes a
user-provided path, is executed on the server-side. In case the
library is used in a way where users can influence the third
parameter of the function, it would become possible for an attacker
to inject arbitrary commands, leading to a compromise of the remote
target.

CVE-2023-1667

A NULL pointer dereference was found In libssh during re-keying with
algorithm guessing. This issue may allow an authenticated client to
cause a denial of service.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
0.8.7-1+deb10u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libssh packages.
