Package : libssh2
Version : 1.8.0-2.1+deb10u1
CVE ID : CVE-2019-13115 CVE-2019-17498 CVE-2020-22218
Debian Bug : 932329 943562

Vulnerabilities were found in libssh2, a client-side C library
implementing the SSH2 protocol, which could lead to denial of service or
remote information disclosure.

CVE-2019-13115

Kevin Backhouse discovered an integer overflow vulnerability in kex.c's
kex_method_diffie_hellman_group_exchange_sha256_key_exchange()
function, which could lead to an out-of-bounds read in the way
packets are read from the server. A remote attacker who compromises
an SSH server may be able to disclose sensitive information or cause
a denial of service condition on the client system when a user
connects to the server.

CVE-2019-17498

Kevin Backhouse discovered that the SSH_MSG_DISCONNECT logic in
packet.c has an integer overflow in a bounds check, thereby enabling
an attacker to specify an arbitrary (out-of-bounds) offset for a
subsequent memory read. A malicious SSH server may be able to
disclose sensitive information or cause a denial of service
condition on the client system when a user connects to the server.

CVE-2020-22218

An issue was discovered in function _libssh2_packet_add(), which
could allow attackers to access out of bounds memory.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
1.8.0-2.1+deb10u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libssh2 packages.
