Re: Wheezy update of openssh?

Hi OpenSSH Maintainers and LTS team

I have prepared an update for wheezy now.

You can find the debdiff here:

And the prepared package here:

I have regression tested the package by installing it and checked that
I can still log in (using password, not key).

I also reproduced the problem by entering a very long password (> 1024
characters) and I was denied. Whether that was because it did not
calculate the hash or not is hard to tell. I was not allowed to enter
such a long password by passwd command.

I will upload the correction in four days (that is on Friday) unless
anyone objects.

Best regards

// Ola
