"All versions of OpenSSH's sshd prior to 3.7 contain a buffer management
error. It is uncertain whether this error is potentially
exploitable,however, we prefer to see bugs fixed proactively."

This is a follow up advisory to indicate the further fixes have been
made. From the ChangeLog:

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-misc/openssh upgrade to openssh-3.7.1_p1 as follows:
