Summary

Amazon Linux Local Security Checks

Insight

Insight

A type confusion issue was found in the way libssh2 generated ephemeral secrets for the diffie-hellman-group1 and diffie-hellman-group14 key exchange methods. This would cause an SSHv2 Diffie-Hellman handshake to use significantly less secure random parameters.

Solution

Solution

Run yum update libssh2 to update your system.
