Patch  oval:com.redhat.rhsa:def:20060298
RHSA-2006:0298: openssh security update (Low)  

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's SSH (Secure SHell) protocol implementation. This package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH client and server.
An arbitrary command execution flaw was discovered in the way scp copies files locally. It is possible for a local attacker to create a file with a carefully crafted name that could execute arbitrary commands as the user running scp to copy files locally. (CVE-2006-0225)
The SSH daemon, when restricting host access by numeric IP addresses and with VerifyReverseMapping disabled, allows remote attackers to bypass "from=" and "[email protected]" address restrictions by connecting to a host from a system whose reverse DNS hostname contains the numeric IP address. (CVE-2003-0386)
The following issues have also been fixed in this update:
* If the sshd service was stopped using the sshd init script while the main sshd daemon was not running, the init script would kill other sshd processes, such as the running sessions. For example, this could happen when the 'service sshd stop' command was issued twice.
* When privilege separation was enabled, the last login message was printed only for the root user.
* The sshd daemon was sending messages to the system log from a signal handler when debug logging was enabled. This could cause a deadlock of the user's connection.
All users of openssh should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
evr_string datatype
Represents epoch, version, and release number as a single version string
