 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:045
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libssh
 Date    : April 5, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated libssh packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 Multiple double free flaws, buffer overflow flaws, invalid free
 flaws, and improper overflow checks in libssh before 0.5.3 could
 enable a denial of service attack against libssh clients, or possibly
 arbitrary code execution (CVE-2012-4559, CVE-2012-4560, CVE-2012-4561
 and CVE-2012-4562).
 
 Yong Chuan Koh discovered that libssh incorrectly handled certain
 negotiation requests. A remote attacker could use this to cause libssh
 to crash, resulting in a denial of service (CVE-2013-0176).
