Please update to the new version of OpenSSH on Oracle Linux 7.9

Accepted answer

I found that my server was "lucky" to be on shodan.

In the "Vulnerabilities" section, we are facing two security vulnerabilities related to OpenSSH, CVE-2018-15919 and CVE-2017-15906.

Although it was noted that "the device may not be engaged by all of these issues. The vulnerabilities are implied based on the software and version." but when I check the OpenSSH version on the server, it is true that the current version is at risk of being exploited by the above 2 vulnerabilities.

I tried running "yum update" but there is no newer version for OpenSSH, and now the latest version (also the one I am using) is "OpenSSH_7.4p1, OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips 26 Jan 2017" with the operating system Oracle Linux 7.9 build 2021.08.27-0.

Howdy, Stranger!
