A vulnerability has been reported in OpenSSH, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
The vulnerability is caused due to the improper handling of errors within an SSH session encrypted with a block cipher algorithm in the CBC (Cipher-Block Chaining) mode. This can be exploited to potentially disclose up to 32 plaintext bits from an arbitrary block of ciphertext.
NOTE: An attack has a low probability of success, an attempt resulting in the termination of the current SSH session.
Successful exploitation requires that an attacker is able to read and alter network data.
