[SECURITY] [DLA 1730-3] libssh2 regression update

Package        : libssh2
Version        : 1.4.3-4.1+deb8u4
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-3859 CVE-2019-13115

Various security problems have been additionally fixed in libssh2, an SSH
client implementation written in C++.


    While investigating the impact of CVE-2019-13115 in Debian jessie's
    version of libssh2, it was discovered that issues around
    CVE-2019-3859 had not been fully resolved in Debian jessie's version
    of libssh2. A thorough manual (read, analyze, and copy code changes
    if needed) comparison of upstream code and code in Debian jessie's
    version of libssh2 was done and various more boundary checks and
    integer overflow protections got added to the package.


    Kevin Backhouse from semmle.com discovered that initial fixes for the
    CVE series CVE-2019-3855 - 2019-3863 introduced several regressions
    about signedness of length return values into the upstream code.
    While working on the CVE-2019-3859 update mentioned above, it was
    paid attention to not introduce these upstream regression registered
    as CVE-2019-13115.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your libssh2 packages.
