Alcatel Information for VU#389665

Multiple vendors' SSH transport layer protocol implementations contain vulnerabilities in key exchange and initialization



Vendor Statement

Following CERT advisory CA-2002-36 on security vulnerabilities in the SSH implementations, Alcatel has conducted an immediate assessment to determine any impact this may have on our portfolio. A first analysis showed that various Alcatel products were affected: namely the 6600, 7000 and 8000 OmniSwitches running AOS 5.1.3 and for which corrections had been made available to customers. This issue has now been fixed both in a AOS 5.1.3 maintenance release and in AOS 5.1.4. The security of our customers' networks is of highest priority for Alcatel. Therefore we continue to test our product portfolio against potential SSH security vulnerabilities and will provide updates if necessary.
