Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66065

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in openssh :

The default configuration of OpenSSH through 6.1 enforces a fixed time limit between establishing a TCP connection and completing a login, which makes it easier for remote attackers to cause a denial of service (connection-slot exhaustion) by periodically making many new TCP connections (CVE-2010-5107).

The updated packages have been patched to correct thies issue.


Update the affected packages.
