Synopsis
========

A flaw in the OpenSSH daemon allows remote unauthenticated attackers to
cause a Denial of Service.

Background
==========

OpenSSH is a free suite of applications for the SSH protocol, developed
and maintained by the OpenBSD project.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-misc/openssh < 4.3_p2-r5 >= 4.3_p2-r5

Description
===========

Tavis Ormandy of the Google Security Team discovered a Denial of
Service vulnerability in the SSH protocol version 1 CRC compensation
attack detector.

Impact
======

A remote unauthenticated attacker may be able to trigger excessive CPU
usage by sending a pathological SSH message, denying service to other
legitimate users or processes.

Workaround
==========

The system administrator may disable SSH protocol version 1 in
/etc/ssh/sshd_config.

Resolution
==========

All OpenSSH users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=net-misc/openssh-4.3_p2-r3"

References
