Bug#603070: unblock: rssh/2.3.2-13

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock rssh 2.3.2-13, which fixes a memory allocation programming
error that leads to a one-byte buffer overflow.  The overflow only
involves data coming from local configuration or static in the program and
therefore should not be exploitable, but since it's a one-line patch and
memory overwrites are scary, I'd like to get this fixed for squeeze.


  * When allocating the buffer to tell a locked-out user what commands are
    supported, add an additional byte for the nul at the end of the
    string.  (Closes: #601145)
