MDKA-2007:127 : openssh-askpass-qt

High Nessus Plugin ID 29341


The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.


The QT openssh password asking dialog, provided by openssh-askpass-qt package, would always exit with successful status (0), even when the user did not press the Ok button. This would, at least, make the openssh client always allow sharing a connection when ControlMaster option was set to ask.

This update fixes the issue.


Update the affected package(s).
