3. Description:

OpenSSH is an SSH protocol implementation supported by a number of Linux,
UNIX, and similar operating systems. It includes the core files necessary
for both the OpenSSH client and server.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
openssh (7.4p1). (BZ#1341754)

Security Fix(es):

* A covert timing channel flaw was found in the way OpenSSH handled
authentication of non-existent users. A remote unauthenticated attacker
could possibly use this flaw to determine valid user names by measuring the
timing of server responses. (CVE-2016-6210)

* It was found that OpenSSH did not limit password lengths for password
authentication. A remote unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to
temporarily trigger high CPU consumption in sshd by sending long passwords.
(CVE-2016-6515)

* It was found that ssh-agent could load PKCS#11 modules from arbitrary
paths. An attacker having control of the forwarded agent-socket on the
server, and the ability to write to the filesystem of the client host,
could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running ssh-agent. (CVE-2016-10009)

* It was found that the host private key material could possibly leak to
the privilege-separated child processes via re-allocated memory. An
attacker able to compromise the privilege-separated process could therefore
obtain the leaked key information. (CVE-2016-10011)

* It was found that the boundary checks in the code implementing support
for pre-authentication compression could have been optimized out by certain
compilers. An attacker able to compromise the privilege-separated process
could possibly use this flaw for further attacks against the privileged
monitor process. (CVE-2016-10012)

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

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