A vulnerability was found in OpenSSH. The PKCS#11 feature in the ssh-agent in
OpenSSH has an insufficiently trustworthy search path, leading to remote code
execution if an agent is forwarded to an attacker-controlled system (the code
in /usr/lib is not necessarily safe for loading into ssh-agent).
This flaw allows an attacker with control of the forwarded agent-socket on the
server and the ability to write to the filesystem of the client host to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the ssh-agent.
An openssh security update has been released for Debian GNU/Linux 8 and 9 Extended LTS to address an issue that could result in remote code execution.
