OpenSSH 3.4p1 PrivSep not working ?
Has anyone noticed that Privilege Separation doesn't work in the latest packages for Mandrake & Solaris ?
Having compiled it manually on one machine and installed the package on another, I noticed a difference between "ps -eaf|grep ssh". Reading the README.privsep, I could see that the manually compiled version was working as described, but neither the latest RPM package for Mandrake Linux, and the Sparc/Solaris8 package from SunFreeware.com ran a separate "monitor" process for each client connection.
