Is ProVide affected by the old libssh bug discovered in 2018?

ProVide Server does not use libssh and is thereby NOT in any way affected by the recently discovered bug in libssh version 0.6 released in 2014 (CVE-2018-10933). CVE-2018-10933, on applicable systems, allowed access to a server running libssh version 0.6 released in 2014 by presenting the message SSH2_MSG_USERAUTH_SUCCESS instead of SSH2_MSG_USERAUTH_REQUEST.

As we are NOT using libssh this does NOT affect ProVide Server; however we do stress the importance of using updated software, firmware and applying relevant security patches regardless of the system being used.
