Re: [suse-security] Portable OpenSSH Security Advisory: sshpam.adv

Calling PAM routines is not suitable if not running as root. It just doesn't work.
So the PAMAuthenticationViaKbdInt will not work?

Independently from hosts.allow, access can be restricted in sshd_config,
Is that via the AllowUsers option? Would this help protect against the current security vulnerabilities? I ask, because I have some machines that are running an older sshd that does not have privsep and is not compiled with libwrap support.

Thanks for your advice

Simon Oliver
