SynopsisThe remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch
DescriptionThe remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:008 (openssh).
A problem in the handling of scp in openssh could be used to execute commands on remote hosts even using a scp-only configuration.
This requires doing a remote-remote scp and a hostile server. (CVE-2006-0225)
On SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 the xauth pollution problem was fixed too.
The security fix changes the handling of quoting filenames which might break automated scripts using this functionality.
Please check that your automated scp scripts still work after the update.
