Debian Security Advisory DSA-025-2                                      security@debian.org

Package        : openssh
Vulnerability  : Wrong libSSL
Debian-specific: yes
A former security upload of OpenSSH was linked against the wrong version of libssl (providing an API to SSL), that version was not available on sparc. This ought to fix a former upload that lacked support for PAM which lead into people not being able to log in into their server. This was only a problem on the sparc architecture.

We recommend you upgrade your ssh packages on sparc.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.
You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
