Fedora Core 4 : openssh-4.2p1-fc4.1 (2005-860)

High Nessus Plugin ID 19732


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This security update fixes CVE-2005-2797 and CVE-2005-2798 and resolves a problem with X forwarding binding only on IPv6 address on certain circumstances. As it is an upgrade to a newer upstream release there is a small change in interoperability with ssh clients older than 3.5p1 if they are configured so they insist on compression. If interoperability with such clients is required, the 'Compression' option must be set to 'yes'.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
