Updated openssh packages fix security vulnerabilitiesPublication date: 12 May 2019
Affected Mageia releases : 6
CVE: CVE-2019-6109 , CVE-2019-6111
Updated openssh packages fix security vulnerabilities: Due to missing character encoding in the progress display, the object name can be used to manipulate the client output, for example to employ ANSI codes to hide additional files being transferred (CVE-2019-6109). Due to scp client insufficient input validation in path names sent by server, a malicious server can do arbitrary file overwrites in target directory. If the recursive (-r) option is provided, the server can also manipulate subdirectories as well (CVE-2019-6111). The check added in this version can lead to regression if the client and the server have differences in wildcard expansion rules. If the server is trusted for that purpose, the check can be disabled with a new -T option to the scp client.
