OpenSSH contains a flaw that may allow an attacker to gain access to unauthorized privileges. The issue is triggered when an error occurs in the ChrootDirectory feature during the handling of hard links to setuid programs that utilize configuration files in the chroot directory. This may allow a local attacker to gain escalated privileges.
