Scientific Linux Security Update : openssh on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71196
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe default OpenSSH configuration made it easy for remote attackers to exhaust unauthorized connection slots and prevent other users from being able to log in to a system. This flaw has been addressed by enabling random early connection drops by setting MaxStartups to 10:30:100 by default. For more information, refer to the sshd_config(5) man page. (CVE-2010-5107)
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
