rssh -- privilege escalation vulnerability


Pizzashack reports:

Max Vozeler has reported a problem whereby rssh can allow users who have shell access to systems where rssh is installed (and rssh_chroot_helper is installed SUID) to gain root access to the system, due to the ability to chroot to arbitrary locations. There are a lot of potentially mitigating factors, but to be safe you should upgrade immediately.
