Updated program opens Unix, Linux security hole

Author: JT Smith

From CNet: "A flaw in widely used Unix software could allow attackers to gain control over computers
running Solaris, HP-UX and several versions of Linux, security analysts and the company
selling the software warned Monday.

SSH Communications Security, a Finnish company, reported Monday that the latest edition of its
SSH Secure Shell software, version 3.0.0, released June 21, can let an attacker gain control over
some Unix or Linux computers."
