1. Problem Summary

   If the UseLogin feature is enabled in ssh local users could pass
   environment variables to the login process.

2. Impact

   A user can gain root privileges.

3. Solution

  This has been fixed by not copying the environment if UseLogin is enabled.

  Update the following packages from our ftp serv.rpm20
  by running the following command:

  rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/<rpm>

  Where <rpm> are the following:

  openssl-0.9.6b-1.i386.rpm
  openssl-devel-0.9.6b-1.i386.rpm
  openssh-2.9p2-6.i386.rpm
  openssh-askpass-2.9p2-6.i386.rpm
  openssh-askpass-gnome-2.9p2-6.i386.rpm
  openssh-clients-2.9p2-6.i386.rpm
  openssh-server-2.9p2-6.i386.rpm


  The source RPM can be downloaded from:

  ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/openssl-0.9.6b-1.src.rpm
  ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/openssh-2.9p2-6.src.rpm

  **Note: You must rebuild and install the RPM if you choose to download
  and install the SRPM.  Simply installing the SRPM alone WILL NOT CLOSE
  THE SECURITY HOLE.

 Please verify the MD5 checksums of the updates before you install:

  MD5 sum                               Package Name
