=

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 18.10
– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-3795-1 and USN-3795-2 introduced a regression in libssh.

Software Description:
– libssh: A tiny C SSH library

Details:

USN-3795-1 and USN-3795-2 fixed a vulnerability in libssh. The upstream
fix introduced a regression. This update fixes the problem.

Original advisory details:

Peter Winter-Smith discovered that libssh incorrectly handled
authentication when being used as a server. A remote attacker could use
this issue to bypass authentication without any credentials.

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
