I. DESCRIPTION (From cve.mitre.org)

CVE-2013-4548

The mm_newkeys_from_blob function in monitor_wrap.c in sshd in OpenSSH 
6.2 and 6.3, when an AES-GCM cipher is used, does not properly initialize
memory for a MAC context data structure, which allows remote i
authenticated users to bypass intended ForceCommand and login-shell 
restrictions via packet data that provides a crafted callback address.
