Description Andrej Nemec 2019-03-11 09:00:00 UTC
A server could send a specially crafted SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_REQUEST packet with an
exit status message and no payload. This would result in an out of bounds
memory comparison.

Comment 6 Doran Moppert 2019-03-19 04:41:53 UTC
Statement:

This flaw was present in libssh2 packages included in Red Hat Virtualization Hypervisor and Management Appliance, however libssh2 in these hosts is never exposed to malicious clients or servers.
