Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0465-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0465-01 - OpenSSH is OpenBSD's SSH protocol implementation. These packages include the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH client and server. It was discovered that the OpenSSH server did not sanitize data received in requests to enable X11 forwarding. An authenticated client with restricted SSH access could possibly use this flaw to bypass intended restrictions. An access flaw was discovered in OpenSSH; the OpenSSH client did not correctly handle failures to generate authentication cookies for untrusted X11 forwarding. A malicious or compromised remote X application could possibly use this flaw to establish a trusted connection to the local X server, even if only untrusted X11 forwarding was requested.

3. Description:

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's SSH (Secure Shell) protocol implementation.
These packages include the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH client
and server.

It was discovered that the OpenSSH server did not sanitize data received
in requests to enable X11 forwarding. An authenticated client with
restricted SSH access could possibly use this flaw to bypass intended
restrictions. (CVE-2016-3115)

An access flaw was discovered in OpenSSH; the OpenSSH client did not
correctly handle failures to generate authentication cookies for untrusted
X11 forwarding. A malicious or compromised remote X application could
possibly use this flaw to establish a trusted connection to the local X
server, even if only untrusted X11 forwarding was requested.
(CVE-2016-1908)

All openssh users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing this
update, the OpenSSH server daemon (sshd) will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

For details on how to apply this update, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1298741 - CVE-2016-1908 openssh: possible fallback from untrusted to trusted X11 forwarding
1316829 - CVE-2016-3115 openssh: missing sanitisation of input for X11 forwarding
