It seems there is much debate on whether linux based hosts are
vulnerable to the recent remote root exploit for OpenSSH. I have seen
advisories for FreeBSD/NetBSD/OpenBSD but the two systems that I have
most encountered in my tests are Linux and Solaris, though I can't find
a proof of concept exploit for these systems. Any information would be
greatly appreciated.
