Sun Microsystems, Inc. Information for VU#978316

Vulnerability in OpenSSH daemon (sshd)



Vendor Statement

The Solaris Secure Shell, which ships with Solaris 9 and later, is based on OpenSSH and is therefore vulnerable to this issue. The advice to enable the sshd_config(4) option of VerifyReverseMapping is a valid workaround for Solaris Secure Shell as well. Similarly, the use of IP addresses instead of hostnames for the sshd_config(4) options of AllowUsers and DenyUsers will also workaround this issue.
