commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=8d76402ee113bd6d47b0d13162f2a753f98e37d5
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

In libssh2 v1.9.0 and earlier versions, the SSH_MSG_DISCONNECT logic in
packet.c has an integer overflow in a bounds check, enabling an attacker
to specify an arbitrary (out-of-bounds) offset for a subsequent memory
read. A crafted SSH server may be able to disclose sensitive information
or cause a denial of service condition on the client system when a user
connects to the server.
