openssh vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

    Ubuntu 18.10
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in OpenSSH.

Software Description

    openssh - secure shell (SSH) for secure access to remote machines

Details

Harry Sintonen discovered multiple issus in the OpenSSH scp utility. If a user
or automated system were tricked into connecting to an untrusted server, a
remote attacker could possibly use these issues to write to arbitrary files,
change directory permissions, and spoof client output.

    openssh-client - 1:7.7p1-4ubuntu0.2

    openssh-client - 1:7.2p2-4ubuntu2.7
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    openssh-client - 1:6.6p1-2ubuntu2.12
