Debian Security Advisory DSA-027--1                                     security@debian.org

Package        : openssh
Vulnerability  : remote memory overwrite, key exchange problem
Type           : remote exploit
Debian-specific: no
This upload fixes:

1. Prior versions of OpenSSH are vulnerable to a remote arbitrary memory overwrite attack which may eventually lead into a root exploit. No exploit program is known yet but expected to come up soon.

2. CORE-SDI has described a problem with regards to RSA key exchange and a Bleichenbacher attack to gather the session key from an ssh session.

We recommend you upgrade your openssh package immediately.

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.
