Description:
Previous versions of the openssh package are vulnerable to a
remote denial of service attack that cause the server to consume
CPU when presented with certain data. They also have a bug (not
a vulnerability) that causes the client to crash harmlessly
instead of exiting cleanly under some attacks; this is not a
vulnerability but is also fixed in this update.
