Package        : openssh
Problem type   : remote exploit
Debian-specific: no
The adv.fwd security advisory from OpenBSD reported a problem with openssh that Jacob Langseth jwl@pobox.com found: when the connection is established the remote ssh server can force the ssh client to enable agent and X11 forwarding.

This has been fixed in version 1.2.3-9.1 and we recommend that you upgrade your openssh packages immediately.
