Description Josh Bressers 2005-09-02 13:43:31 EDT

The OpenSSH 4.2 release fixes a bug in its dynamic port forwarding.

1) An error in handling dynamic port forwardings when no listen address is
specified, can cause "GatewayPorts" to be incorrectly activated.

The security issue is reportedly introduced in version 4.0.

This issue only affects FC4
