OpenSSH 5.4 < 7.1p2 Multiple Vulnerabilities
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106608
SynopsisThe SSH server running on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of OpenSSH running on the remote host is 5.x, 6.x or 7.x prior to 7.1p2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
- A potential information disclosure vulnerability which may allow remote servers to obtain sensitive information from process memory by requesting transmission of an entire buffer (CVE-2016-0777)
- A denial of service vulnerability due to a heap-base overflow in roaming_common.c (CVE-2016-07778)
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to OpenSSH version 7.1p2 or later.
