Scientific Linux Security Update : openssh on SL7.x x86_64

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 87938

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description

An information leak flaw was found in the way the OpenSSH client
roaming feature was implemented. A malicious server could potentially
use this flaw to leak portions of memory (possibly including private
SSH keys) of a successfully authenticated OpenSSH client.
(CVE-2016-0777)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the OpenSSH client roaming
feature was implemented. A malicious server could potentially use this
flaw to execute arbitrary code on a successfully authenticated OpenSSH
client if that client used certain non-default configuration options.
(CVE-2016-0778)

After installing this update, the OpenSSH server daemon (sshd) will be
restarted automatically.

Solution
