Vulnerability: Local vulnerability in OpenSSH

The OpenSSH team has reported a vulnerability in the OpenSSH server that allows local users to obtain root privilege if the server has the UseLogin option enabled. This option is off by default on OpenLinux, so a default installation is not vulnerable.
