Synopsis
========

A vulnerability has been discovered in OpenSSH, which can lead to remote
code execution with root privileges.

Background
==========

OpenSSH is a free application suite consisting of server and clients
that replace tools like telnet, rlogin, rcp and ftp with more secure
versions offering additional functionality.

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

Package Vulnerable Unaffected
---------------- ------------ ------------
net-misc/openssh < 9.7_p1-r6 >= 9.7_p1-r6

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

A vulnerability has been discovered in OpenSSH. Please review the CVE
identifier referenced below for details.

Impact
======

A critical vulnerability in sshd(8) was present in Portable OpenSSH
versions that may allow arbitrary code execution with root privileges.

Successful exploitation has been demonstrated on 32-bit Linux/glibc
systems with ASLR. Under lab conditions, the attack requires on
average 6-8 hours of continuous connections up to the maximum the
server will accept. Exploitation on 64-bit systems is believed to be
possible but has not been demonstrated at this time. It's likely that
these attacks will be improved upon.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Note that Gentoo has backported the fix to the following versions:

net-misc/openssh-9.6_p1-r5
net-misc/openssh-9.7_p1-r6

Resolution
==========

All OpenSSH users should upgrade to the latest version and restart the
sshd server (to ensure access for new sessions and no vulnerable code
keeps running).

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/openssh-9.7_p1-r6"

With OpenRC:
# rc-service sshd restart

With systemD:
# systemctl try-restart sshd.service
