SUSE SLED11 / SLES11 Security Update : openssh (SUSE-SU-2015:1695-1) (Logjam)
High Nessus Plugin ID 86339
SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionOpenSSH was updated to fix several security issues and bugs.
Please note that due to a bug in the previous shipped openssh version, sshd might not correctly restart. Please verify that the ssh daemon is running after installing this update.
These security issues were fixed :
- CVE-2015-5352: The x11_open_helper function, when ForwardX11Trusted mode is not used, lacked a check of the refusal deadline for X connections, which made it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a connection outside of the permitted time window. (bsc#936695)
- CVE-2015-5600: The kbdint_next_device function in auth2-chall.c in sshd did not properly restrict the processing of keyboard-interactive devices within a single connection, which made it easier for remote attackers to conduct brute-force attacks or cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a long and duplicative list in the ssh
-oKbdInteractiveDevices option, as demonstrated by a modified client that provides a different password for each pam element on this list. (bsc#938746)
- CVE-2015-4000: Removed and disabled weak DH groups to address LOGJAM. (bsc#932483)
- Hardening patch to fix sftp RCE. (bsc#903649)
- CVE-2015-6563: The monitor component in sshd accepted extraneous username data in MONITOR_REQ_PAM_INIT_CTX requests, which allowed local users to conduct impersonation attacks by leveraging any SSH login access in conjunction with control of the sshd uid to send a crafted MONITOR_REQ_PWNAM request, related to monitor.c and monitor_wrap.c.
- CVE-2015-6564: Use-after-free vulnerability in the mm_answer_pam_free_ctx function in monitor.c in sshd might have allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging control of the sshd uid to send an unexpectedly early MONITOR_REQ_PAM_FREE_CTX request.
Additional a bug was fixed that could lead to openssh not working in chroot (bsc#947458).
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
