Bug(s): #699842
ID: 202007-29


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in rssh, the worst of
which could result in the arbitrary execution of code.


rssh is a restricted shell, allowing only a few commands like scp or
sftp. It is often used as a complement to OpenSSH to provide limited
access to users.

Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in rssh. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Please review the referenced CVE identifiers for details.


There is no known workaround at this time.


Gentoo has discontinued support for rssh. We recommend that users
unmerge rssh:
# emerge --unmerge "app-shells/rssh"
NOTE: The Gentoo developer(s) maintaining rssh have discontinued support
at this time. It may be possible that a new Gentoo developer will update
rssh at a later date. OpenSSH (net-misc/openssh) may be able to provide
similar functionality using its extensive configuration.
