   * Resynchronise with Debian.
 openssh (1:4.3p2-4) unstable; urgency=high
   * Backport from 4.4p1 (since I don't have an updated version of the GSSAPI
     patch yet):
     - CVE-2006-4924: Fix a pre-authentication denial of service found by
       Tavis Ormandy, that would cause sshd(8) to spin until the login grace
       time expired (closes: #389995).
     - CVE-2006-5051: Fix an unsafe signal hander reported by Mark Dowd. The
       signal handler was vulnerable to a race condition that could be
       exploited to perform a pre-authentication denial of service. On
       portable OpenSSH, this vulnerability could theoretically lead to
       pre-authentication remote code execution if GSSAPI authentication is
       enabled, but the likelihood of successful exploitation appears remote.
   * Read /etc/default/locale as well as /etc/environment (thanks, Raphael
     Hertzog; closes: #369395).
   * Remove no-longer-used ssh/insecure_rshd debconf template.
   * Make ssh/insecure_telnetd Type: error (closes: #388946).
   * debconf template translations:
     - Update Portuguese (thanks, Rui Branco; closes: #381942).
     - Update Spanish (thanks, Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena;
       closes: #382966).
 openssh (1:4.3p2-3) unstable; urgency=low
   * Document KeepAlive->TCPKeepAlive renaming in sshd_config(5) (closes:
   * Change sshd user's shell to /usr/sbin/nologin (closes: #366541).
     Introduces dependency on passwd for usermod.
   * debconf template translations:
     - Update French (thanks, Denis Barbier; closes: #368503).
     - Update Dutch (thanks, Bart Cornelis; closes: #375100).
