Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in OpenSSH. A remote user can gain elevated privileges in certain cases.

A remote user that can exploit a separate vulnerability in the unprivileged pre-authentication process to execute arbitrary code can then exploit two separate flaws in sshd(8) to bypass privilege separation controls [CVE-2015-6563, CVE-2015-6564].
