Cross-References: CVE-2016-10009 CVE-2016-10010 CVE-2016-10011
CVE-2016-10012 CVE-2016-8858
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.2

An update that solves 5 vulnerabilities and has three fixes
is now available.


This update for openssh fixes several issues.

These security issues were fixed:

- CVE-2016-8858: The kex_input_kexinit function in kex.c allowed remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by sending
many duplicate KEXINIT requests (bsc#1005480).
- CVE-2016-10012: The shared memory manager (associated with
pre-authentication compression) did not ensure that a bounds check is
enforced by all compilers, which might allowed local users to gain
privileges by leveraging access to a sandboxed privilege-separation
process, related to the m_zback and m_zlib data structures (bsc#1016370).
- CVE-2016-10009: Untrusted search path vulnerability in ssh-agent.c
allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary local PKCS#11 modules by
leveraging control over a forwarded agent-socket (bsc#1016366).
- CVE-2016-10010: When forwarding unix domain sockets with privilege
separation disabled, the resulting sockets have be created as 'root'
instead of the authenticated user. Forwarding unix domain sockets
without privilege separation enabled is now rejected.
- CVE-2016-10011: authfile.c in sshd did not properly consider the effects
of realloc on buffer contents, which might allowed local users to obtain
sensitive private-key information by leveraging access to a
privilege-separated child process (bsc#1016369).

These non-security issues were fixed:

- Adjusted suggested command for removing conflicting server keys from the
known_hosts file (bsc#1006221)
- Properly verify CIDR masks in configuration (bsc#1005893 bsc#1021626)
