A ‘Serious’ security vulnerability has been discovered and fixed in OpenSSH – one of the most widely used open-source implementations of the Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol.
The critical vulnerability could be exploited by hackers to force clients to leak their secret private cryptographic keys, potentially exposing users to Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks.
What Causes the Flaw to occur?
Researchers have demonstrated new collision attacks against SHA-1 and MD5 implementations in TLS, IKE and SSH.
