|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: LibSSH: Information disclosure (GLSA 201408-03)
Date: August 10, 2014
A vulnerability in LibSSH can result in leakage of private key
LibSSH is a C library providing SSHv2 and SSHv1.
Vulnerable: < 0.6.3
Unaffected: >= 0.6.3
Architectures: All supported architectures
A new connection inherits the state of the PRNG without re-seeding with
Servers using ECC (ECDSA) or DSA certificates in non-deterministic mode
may under certain conditions leak their private key.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All LibSSH users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/libssh-0.6.3"
