Recommended update for openssh

SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for openssh
Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2019:13939-1
Rating: important
References: #1123028
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11-SP4
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Debuginfo 11-SP4

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


This update for openssh fixes the following issues:

  • A previously applied security patch unintendedly changed the behavior of OpenSSH's "scp" utility such that server-side brace expansion would no longer be supported. Attempts to copy a set files from a remote machine to the local one by running "scp 'remote:{file-a,file-b}' /tmp" would fail. This change in behavior broke Corosync and, potentially, many user scripts that relied on brace expansion. [bsc#1123028]
