CVE-2019-6110

Priority
Description
In OpenSSH 7.9, due to accepting and displaying arbitrary stderr output
from the server, a malicious server (or Man-in-The-Middle attacker) can
manipulate the client output, for example to use ANSI control codes to hide
additional files being transferred.
Notes
sarnoldopenssh-ssh1 is provided for compatibility with old devices that
cannot be upgraded to modern protocols. Thus we may not provide security
support for this package if doing so would prevent access to equipment.
mdeslaurThe recommended workaround for this issue is to switch to using
sftp instead of scp.
