Slackware New openssh packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  openssh (SSA:2014-086-06)

New openssh packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/openssh-6.6p1-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue when using environment passing with
  a sshd_config(5) AcceptEnv pattern with a wildcard.  OpenSSH could be
  tricked into accepting any environment variable that contains the
  characters before the wildcard character.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-2532
  (* Security fix *)
