Description Josh Bressers 2006-11-08 13:54:22 EST
OpenSSH has fixed a minor flaw that could allow a remote attacker to bypass
normal authentication mechanisms if a flaw is ever found that allows an attacker
to control the unprivileged process when privilege separation is enabled.

This flaw is not exploitable by itself.  It requires a flaw which allows the
attacker to control the unprivileged process while privilege seperation is enabled.

This issue also affects RHEL3
