Description Vincent Danen 2013-10-10 18:05:42 EDT
It was reported [1] that versions of dropbear prior to 2013.59 suffered from a flaw where it would disclose the existence of valid users due to inconsistent delays on authentication failures.

This has been fixed in git [2].  A CVE assignment is pending [3].
