CVE-2016-1908 (retired)

Priority
Description
The client in OpenSSH before 7.2 mishandles failed cookie generation for
untrusted X11 forwarding and relies on the local X11 server for
access-control decisions, which allows remote X11 clients to trigger a
fallback and obtain trusted X11 forwarding privileges by leveraging
configuration issues on this X11 server, as demonstrated by lack of the
SECURITY extension on this X11 server.
