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.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
- ------------------------------------

  Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and
  sparc architectures.  This is only a (though second) recompile for
  the sparc architecture and thus no new source and no other binary
  packages are provided

  Sun Sparc architecture:
      MD5 checksum: 3e94a9e0fae272c73d94f8eebc12856b
      MD5 checksum: 07f1d7d62c50f47f47061da201d20a2c

  These files will be moved into*/binary-$arch/ soon.

For not yet released architectures please refer to the appropriate
directory$arch/ .
