(Red Hat Issues Fix) OpenSSH Flaws Let Remote Authenticated Users Obtain Potentially Sensitive Information From Client Memory
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1034680
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1034680
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-0777, CVE-2016-0778, CVE-2016-1907   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 14 2016
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 5.4 - 7.1
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in OpenSSH. A remote authenticated server can obtain potentially sensitive information from OpenSSH client memory on the target system or potentially execute arbitrary code on the target client system.

An OpenSSH server on an authenticated connection can cause the connected client to leak portions of client memory to the server [CVE-2016-0777]. This may include private client user keys.

The Qualys Security team reported this vulnerability.

An OpenSSH server on an authenticated connection may be able to trigger a buffer overflow and file descriptor leak in the connected client in certain cases when using ProxyCommand, ForwardAgent, or ForwardX11 [CVE-2016-0778].

The Qualys Security team reported this vulnerability.

A user may be able to trigger an out-of-bounds read access error in the packet handling code [CVE-2016-1907]. Ben Hawkes reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote authenticated server can obtain potentially sensitive information from the target connected client.
Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix.

                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: openssh security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2016:0043-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-0043.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated openssh packages that fix two security issues are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give
detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the
CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client Optional (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode (v. 7) - x86_64

3. Description:

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's SSH (Secure Shell) protocol implementation.
These packages include the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH client
and server.

An information leak flaw was found in the way the OpenSSH client roaming
feature was implemented. A malicious server could potentially use this flaw
to leak portions of memory (possibly including private SSH keys) of a
successfully authenticated OpenSSH client. (CVE-2016-0777)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the OpenSSH client roaming
feature was implemented. A malicious server could potentially use this flaw
to execute arbitrary code on a successfully authenticated OpenSSH client if
that client used certain non-default configuration options. (CVE-2016-0778)

Red Hat would like to thank Qualys for reporting these issues.

All openssh users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing this
update, the OpenSSH server daemon (sshd) will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
