Fedora Update Notification

Name        : openssh
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 6.4p1
Release     : 3.fc20
URL         : http://www.openssh.com/portable.html
Summary     : An open source implementation of SSH protocol versions 1 and 2
Description :
SSH (Secure SHell) is a program for logging into and executing
commands on a remote machine. SSH is intended to replace rlogin and
rsh, and to provide secure encrypted communications between two
untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and
arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel.

OpenSSH is OpenBSD's version of the last free version of SSH, bringing
it up to date in terms of security and features.

This package includes the core files necessary for both the OpenSSH
client and server. To make this package useful, you should also
install openssh-clients, openssh-server, or both.

Update Information:

sshd-keygen has been fixed to create ecdsa host key with correct permissions. The default sshd_config uses only rsa and ecdsa keys now, and these to keys are generated by default - no more dsa and rsa1 host keys
