Status of OpenSSH CVEs Technical Level

This article lists known CVEs for OpenSSH and their status for the OpenSSH packages used in SecurePlatform R70 and above and in Gaia OS. This article does not list all the known CVEs for OpenSSH - only those that were explicitly checked by Check Point.

  • To check if the installed OpenSSH package is patched against a CVE (e.g., for CVE-2006-4924), run:

    [Expert@Hostname]# rpm -q --changelog $(rpm -qa | grep openssh) | grep CVE-2006-4924

    Output should look like:
    - CVE-2006-4924 - prevent DoS on deattack detector (#207957)

  • The rpm -qa | grep ssh command can be used to verify the OpenSSH package version installed on a given machine. This version can be correlated with CVE fixes integrated.


    [Expert@Hostname]# rpm -qa | grep ssh
