K48050136:OpenSSH client vulnerability CVE-2020-14145

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 14 Oct, 2020

Security Advisory Description

The client side in OpenSSH 5.7 through 8.3 has an Observable Discrepancy
leading to an information leak in the algorithm negotiation. This allows
man-in-the-middle attackers to target initial connection attempts (where no
host key for the server has been cached by the client). (CVE-2020-14145)

Impact

SSH sessions may be vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Fixes introduced in column. If the table lists only an older version
than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version,
then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

Connect only to SSH servers with known and trusted host keys.
