Slackware-14.0 ChangeLog (2016-02-26)

Fri Feb 26 22:54:05 UTC 2016

  • patches/packages/libssh-0.7.3-i486-1_slack14.0.txz
    Fixed weak key generation. Due to a bug in the ephemeral secret key
    generation for the diffie-hellman-group1 and diffie-hellman-group14
    methods, ephemeral secret keys of size 128 bits are generated, instead
    of the recommended sizes of 1024 and 2048 bits, giving a practical
    security of 63 bits.
    For more information, see:

    (* Security fix *)
