CVE-2018-10933 libssh patch

Post by Fingai » 2018/10/19 06:00:02

Hi all,
When will Centos release the patched version of libssh that addresses CVE-2018-10933 ?
Also , how does the versioning work , i see the rest of the world is on version libssh 0.8.4 but the Centos repo says we are on libssh2-1.4.3-10.el7 ?
Does Centos build it own version and then increment it with its own numbering system ?

Apologies if these are trivial / stupid questions.

You're confusing libssh and libssh2. They are different.

We do ship libssh 0.7.1 in extras and it comes from upstream RHEL extras channel. They have https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-10933 which basically says "Don't panic".
