1. Topic:

Updated openssh packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 7.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.0 - i386
Red Hat Linux 7.0J - i386

3. Problem description:

The "UseLogin" option to the sshd server in the openssh-server package does not work correctly because sshd was configured to run login from /usr/bin, but the login binary is actually in /bin.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

17835 - update openssh to 2.2.0p1
17909 - Sshd doesn't place /usr/local/bin in the path. UseLogin is broken.
18023 - '/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd stop' doesn't stop all sshd processes, subsequent attempts to start ssh fail

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 7.0:
