MDKSA-2005:172 : openssh

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Sshd in OpenSSH before 4.2, when GSSAPIDelegateCredentials is
enabled, allows GSSAPI credentials to be delegated to clients who log
in using non-GSSAPI methods, which could cause those credentials to
be exposed to untrusted users or hosts.

GSSAPI is only enabled in versions of openssh shipped in LE2005 and
greater.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
