Re: [suse-security] openssh trojan (alert)
Hi again,
to be a little more concrete: about 10 minutes ago I downloaded the tarball of openssh-3.4p1 which is actually available on
I untared it, cd'd to openbsd-compat and did a gcc bf-test.c -o bf-test. After this I did sh bftest > and finally got a shell script which
contains the same as reported on the link below. So there is definitively a connection attempt to this server - but actually I do not know
waht it is good for. Could there be some legal reaseon for this?!?


BTW: were are just trying to double-check the sig of the tarball but due to probs with the keyservers didn't have results for now...
