Comment 1 Stephen Herr 2018-08-16 17:41:33 UTC
MITRE description:

A "buffer management error" in buffer_append_space of buffer.c for OpenSSH before 3.7 may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by causing an incorrect amount of memory to be freed and corrupting the heap, a different vulnerability than CVE-2003-0695.

Comment 2 Stephen Herr 2019-06-13 19:14:18 UTC

Not vulnerable.

This flaw is fixed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 via the errata RHSA-2003:280.

This flaw is fixed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 as a backported patch.  The source RPM contains the patch openssh-3.6.1p2-owl-realloc.diff which resolved this flaw before Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 GA.

This flaw does not affect any subsequent versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
