    Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2002-0047

    Package name: openssh
    Summary: Minor security issue.
    Date: 2002-04-29
    Affected versions: TSL 1.1, 1.2, 1.5

    - --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Problem description:
      When rebuilding the old openssh package with support for kerberos, one
      could potentially become vulnerable to a local root exploit. TSL is not
      shipped with Kerberos by default nor is the openssh packages compiled with
      kerberos support, but since we do expect some people to rebuild the src-rpm
      with kerberos support enabled, we like to upgrade the package.

      We recommend that all systems with this package installed are upgraded.
      Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
      package, you may want to remove it from your system.

      All TSL updates are available from

    Automatic updates:
      Users of the SWUP tool can enjoy having updates automatically
      installed using 'swup --upgrade'.

      Get SWUP from:

    Public testing:
      These packages have been available for public testing for some time.
      If you want to contribute by testing the various packages in the

      tsl-discuss mailinglist.
