Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2014-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Jann Horn discovered that OpenSSH incorrectly handled wildcards in
AcceptEnv lines. A remote attacker could use this issue to possibly
bypass certain intended environment variable restrictions.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected openssh-server package.
