New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

openssh was updated to fix four security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2015-5352: The x11_open_helper function in channels.c in ssh in OpenSSH 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 in OpenSSH 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 (bsc#932483).

- Hardening patch to fix sftp RCE (bsc#903649).

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

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.
