Package : openssh
CVE ID : CVE-2021-41617 CVE-2023-28531 CVE-2023-48795 CVE-2023-51384
CVE-2023-51385
Debian Bug : 995130 1033166

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenSSH, an
implementation of the SSH protocol suite.

CVE-2021-41617

It was discovered that sshd failed to correctly initialise
supplemental groups when executing an AuthorizedKeysCommand or
AuthorizedPrincipalsCommand, where a AuthorizedKeysCommandUser or
AuthorizedPrincipalsCommandUser directive has been set to run the
command as a different user. Instead these commands would inherit
the groups that sshd was started with.

CVE-2023-28531

Luci Stanescu reported that a error prevented constraints being
communicated to the ssh-agent when adding smartcard keys to the
agent with per-hop destination constraints, resulting in keys being
added without constraints.

CVE-2023-48795

Fabian Baeumer, Marcus Brinkmann and Joerg Schwenk discovered that
the SSH protocol is prone to a prefix truncation attack, known as
the "Terrapin attack". This attack allows a MITM attacker to effect
a limited break of the integrity of the early encrypted SSH
transport protocol by sending extra messages prior to the
commencement of encryption, and deleting an equal number of
consecutive messages immediately after encryption starts.

Details can be found at https://terrapin-attack.com/

CVE-2023-51384

It was discovered that when PKCS#11-hosted private keys were
added while specifying destination constraints, if the PKCS#11
token returned multiple keys then only the first key had the
constraints applied.

CVE-2023-51385

It was discovered that if an invalid user or hostname that contained
shell metacharacters was passed to ssh, and a ProxyCommand,
LocalCommand directive or "match exec" predicate referenced the user
or hostname via expansion tokens, then an attacker who could supply
arbitrary user/hostnames to ssh could potentially perform command
injection. The situation could arise in case of git repositories
with submodules, where the repository could contain a submodule with
shell characters in its user or hostname.

For the oldstable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed
in version 1:8.4p1-5+deb11u3.

For the stable distribution (bookworm), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:9.2p1-2+deb12u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssh packages.

Debian Bug : 926148 1036239 1057646

Two security issues were found in Curl, an easy-to-use client-side URL

Additionally, the command line tool does now:
- - display the Debian revision in "curl --version", and
- - does no longer output verbose "Expire in" messsages with "curl -v"
