Description:
In previous versions of openssh, the default cipher order preferred a
block cipher algorithm in Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode, which is
suspectible to a plaintext recovery attack. This update changes the
cipher order to prefer the AES CTR modes, and adds countermeasures
to mitigate attacks against CBC modes.
