FEDORA-EPEL-2018-86171fce03

security update in Fedora EPEL 7 for python-paramiko

Status: stable a year ago

A flaw was found in the implementation of transport.py in Paramiko, which did not properly check whether authentication was completed before processing other requests. A customized SSH client could simply skip the authentication step.

This flaw is a user authentication bypass in the SSH Server functionality of Paramiko. Where Paramiko is used only for its client-side functionality (e.g. paramiko.SSHClient), the vulnerability is not exposed and thus cannot be exploited.

How to install
