Command is sshd -V to know the ssh version.

But how to upgrade it???

Can upgrading the ndlp version will automatically upgrade the ssh version????

Re: ssh version & upgrade to newer version

This is a hardened appliance so you'd be unable to manually upgrade individual components.

Engineering monitors when a vulnerability is found with software that A: is installed and affected and B: meets all the requirements to be a vulnerability.  An example is an exploitable version of OpenSSH might be installed but the exploit can only be run if a specific version of X software is also installed.  Since the appliance is hardened, it won't have X software so the patch is not required.

For a list of changes, the release notes for the patches and hotfixes will list what has been addressed in that particular release.

Re: ssh version & upgrade to newer version

An example of where openssh was upgraded via hotfix - this was taken from the README in the 961926 hotfix gz file:

BUG NUMBER  : 961926

FIX STATUS  : FIXED

BUG SUMMARY : Upgrade openssh RPMs to fix security vulnerabilities

VERIFY FIX  : Fix is to modify sshd_config instead of upgrading RPMs.

  Following vulnerabilities should be fixed:

  CVE-2008-5161

  CVE-2008-1483

  CVE-2010-5107
