Description

Issue Overview:

It was discovered that the OpenSSH sshd daemon fetched PAM environment settings before running the login program. In configurations with UseLogin=yes and the pam_env PAM module configured to read user environment settings, a local user could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code as root.

Affected Packages:

openssh

Issue Correction:
Run yum update openssh to update your system.
