FS#3107 — FS#7060 - Debian: Incorrect SSH authentication log

Attached to Project— Distributions/OS
Incident
Linux
CLOSED
100%
Under Debian 6 (confirmed on the latest version 6.0.5) when you connect via SSH with the wrong key, the daemon logs the following message:

Authentication tried for root with correct key but not from a permitted host (host=AAAA, ip=XXXX).

The message is wrong since the key is not valid.

The bug appeared on Fedora and was corrected since: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=66697

A pist : The logit does not match auth_debug_add

auth-options.c
ligne 515

case 0:
/* no match */
logit("Authentication tried for %.100s "
"with valid certificate but not "
"from a permitted host "
"(ip=%.200s).", pw->pw_name,
remote_ip);
auth_debug_add("Your address '%.200s' "
"is not permitted to use this "
"certificate for login.",
remote_ip);
xfree(allowed);
goto out;
