 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in openssh:
 
 The default configuration of OpenSSH through 6.1 enforces a fixed
 time limit between establishing a TCP connection and completing a
 login, which makes it easier for remote attackers to cause a denial
 of service (connection-slot exhaustion) by periodically making many
 new TCP connections (CVE-2010-5107).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct thies issue.
