Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in libssh could allow a remote attacker to cause a
Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

libssh is a multiplatform C library implementing the SSHv2 protocol on
client and server side.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-libs/libssh < 0.9.4 >= 0.9.4

Description
===========

It was discovered that libssh could crash when AES-CTR ciphers are
used.

Impact
======

A remote attacker running a malicious client or server could possibly
crash the counterpart implemented with libssh and cause a Denial of
Service condition.

Workaround
==========

Disable AES-CTR ciphers. If you implement a server using libssh it is
recommended to use a prefork model so each session runs in an own
process.

Resolution
==========

All libssh users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/libssh-0.9.4"
