	Red Hat Linux 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3
	SuSe Linux 6.4, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3

--
Attack Scenarios:
An attacker first determines what version of OpenSSH the targeted machine is running then launches a publicly available GOBBLES exploit script against it.


--
Ease of Attack:
Simple.

--
False Positives:
None known.

--
False Negatives:
None known.

--
Corrective Action:
