CVE-2007-4752

Priority
Description
ssh in OpenSSH before 4.7 does not properly handle when an untrusted cookie
cannot be created and uses a trusted X11 cookie instead, which allows
attackers to violate intended policy and gain privileges by causing an X
client to be treated as trusted.
Notes
 jdstrand> from secure-testing:
  An exploit needs limited control over the machine running a
  trusted X client, so this is only a slight privilege
  escalation. The X Security extension is merely an afterthought
  and is unlikely to provide strong security guarantees.
