The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for openssh fixes the following issues : Security issues fixed : CVE-2018-15919: Remotely observable behaviour in auth-gss2.c in OpenSSH could be used by remote attackers to detect existence of users on a target system when GSS2 is in use. OpenSSH developers do not want to treat such a username enumeration (or 'oracle') as a vulnerability. (bsc#1106163) CVE-2017-15906: The process_open function in sftp-server.c in OpenSSH did not properly prevent write operations in readonly mode, which allowed attackers to create zero-length files. (bsc#1065000, bsc#1106726) CVE-2016-10708: sshd allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via an out-of-sequence NEWKEYS message, as demonstrated by Honggfuzz, related to kex.c and packet.c. (bsc#1076957) CVE-2018-15473: OpenSSH was prone to a user existance oracle vulnerability due to not delaying bailout for an invalid authenticating user until after the packet containing the request has been fully parsed, related to auth2-gss.c, auth2-hostbased.c, and auth2-pubkey.c. (bsc#1105010) CVE-2016-10012: Removed pre-auth compression support from the server to prevent possible cryptographic attacks. (bsc#1016370) Bugs fixed: Fixed failing 'AuthorizedKeysCommand' within a 'Match User' block in sshd_config (bsc#1105180) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
