Hi @GaryBrand ,

 

Is there a CVE included with the vulnerability? With any news regarding vulnerabilities, I would recommend verifying your source as well as researching the associated CVE. Security advisories issued by vendors and researchers almost always mention at least one CVE ID. 

 

If you take a look at OpenSSH security page there is a vulnerability reported on July 19th by the Qualys team that is assigned CVE-2023-38408.
