openSUSE-SU-2015:0474-1: moderate: Security update for putty
openSUSE Security Update: Security update for putty
______________________________________________________________________________

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2015:0474-1
Rating: moderate
References: #920167
Cross-References: CVE-2015-2157
Affected Products:
openSUSE 13.2
openSUSE 13.1
______________________________________________________________________________

An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.

Description:

The SSH Terminal emulator putty was updated to the new upstream release
0.64, fixing security issues and bugs:

Security fix: PuTTY no longer retains the private half of users' keys in
memory by mistake after authenticating with them. [bsc#920167]
(CVE-2015-2157)

New feature: Support for SSH connection sharing, so that multiple
instances of PuTTY to the same host can share a single SSH connection
instead
of all having to log in independently.

Bug fix: IPv6 literals are handled sensibly throughout the suite, if you
enclose them in square brackets to prevent the colons being mistaken for a
:port suffix.
