Slackware These packages fix additional buffer managementerrors that were not corrected in the recent 3.7p1 release.

[slackware-security]  OpenSSH updated again (SSA:2003-260-01)

Upgraded OpenSSH 3.7.1p1 packages are available for Slackware
8.1, 9.0 and -current.  These fix additional buffer management
errors that were not corrected in the recent 3.7p1 release.
The possibility exists that these errors could allow a remote
exploit, so we recommend all sites running OpenSSH upgrade to
the new OpenSSH package immediately.

Here are the details from the Slackware 9.0 ChangeLog:
Wed Sep 17 01:25:22 PDT 2003
patches/packages/openssh-3.7.1p1-i386-1.tgz:  Upgraded to openssh-3.7.1p1.
  The OpenSSH advisory was updated  (
  and now says that you need at least version 3.7.1, which fixes some
  more buffer problems like those fixed by 3.7.
  (* Security fix *)
