Thats wrong. Patched ssh 1.2.27 as used in our updated packages are not
vulnerable. Since 7.2 the src rpm contains a "deattac.patch"
file which is applied in the built packages since 7.2.
All ssh's since and including 7.2 are safe against crc32.
If you use older distributions you should have read our
advisories which tell you which updated packages to use for these
distros. The announcement-id was SuSE-SA:2001:04 and
the advisory may be found at

As a general rule, if you are not sure about the versions, always
use the newest packages from our ftp server, and you are
on the safe side. :-)
