Description thibaut.pouzet 2016-10-13 14:45:10 UTC
Description of problem:

There has been a patch made upstream for a DoS issue within openssh-server
https://github.com/openssh/openssh-portable/commit/ec165c392ca54317dbe3064a8c200de6531e89ad#diff-cc9e833353f4432391cb4c8463c0a2be
Comment of the commit : 
Unregister the KEXINIT handler after message has been received. Otherwise an unauthenticated peer can repeat the KEXINIT and cause allocation of up to 128MB -- until the connection is closed. Reported by shilei-c at 360.cn

I cannot find any information inside RedHat's bugzilla about the status of RHEL on this topic.
