- Date Updated: 17 Mar 2003
Our SSH2 server and client products, WinSSHD and Tunnelier, are not vulnerable as they perform no RSA private key operations. Our SSH2 library, sshlib, is also not vulnerable as it implements RSA signatures only, with an RSA implementation which uses a different exponentiation algorithm than targeted by this attack.
The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.
The CERT/CC has no additional comments at this time.
If you have feedback, comments, or additional information about this vulnerability, please send us email.
