CVE-2016-1908

Description

It was discovered that OpenSSH client did not correctly handle situations when untrusted X11 forwarding was requested and generation of the untrusted authentication cookie failed. The ssh client continued by generating fake authentication cookie and allowed remote X clients to connect the local X server. The decision if client connection was accepted was delegated to the X server which, depending on its configuration, could allow clients to open trusted X connection. This would lead to remote X clients having more privileged access to the local X server than intended.
