The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
Several security problems were fixed in OpenSSH :
- CVE-2006-4924: A denial of service problem has been
fixed in OpenSSH which could be used to cause lots of
CPU consumption on a remote openssh server.
- CVE-2006-4925: If a remote attacker is able to inject
network traffic this could be used to cause a client
connection to close.
- CVE-2006-5051: Fixed an unsafe signal hander reported by
Mark Dowd. The signal handler was vulnerable to a race
condition that could be exploited to perform a
pre-authentication denial of service. This vulnerability
could theoretically lead to pre-authentication remote
code execution if GSSAPI authentication is enabled, but
the likelihood of successful exploitation appears
- CVE-2006-5052: Fixed a GSSAPI authentication abort that
could be used to determine the validity of usernames on
Update the affected openssh packages.
