<p>LibSSH is a C library providing SSHv2 and SSHv1.</p>
<p>A new connection inherits the state of the PRNG without re-seeding with
random data.
<impact type="low">
<p>Servers using ECC (ECDSA) or DSA certificates in non-deterministic mode
may under certain conditions leak their private key.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All LibSSH users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=net-libs/libssh-0.6.3"
