There is apparently a serious security bug in openssh, probably remote-root.
See http://www.openssh.com . Debian security fix URL was just posted to
bugtraq; it is http://www.debian.org/security/2002/dsa-134
They're not saying what the bug is yet, but the hush-hush suggests that it is
Also, it sure would be nice if you made it easier for those of us still running
some redhat 6.2 machines to upgrade to the new openssh you're presumably about
to release. I guess you don't have any moral responsibility to because you
didn't distribute openssh with redhat 6.x, but I _think_ that merely a modern
openssl [that's an L] rpm for redhat 6.2, plus updated versions of everything
which depends upon openssl, would make the rest of it fairly easy for your
humble audience. The big problem is some sort of incompatible change between
openssl 0.95 and 0.96, I think.
