Package        : openssh
Vulnerability  : Missing PAM support
Debian-specific: yes

A former security upload of OpenSSH 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.
