OpenSSH Vulnerability in AES-GCM

OpenSSH has announced an advisory concerning the potential of memory corruption when the AES-GCM cipher is used during key exchange. OpenSSH v6.4 is unaffected but users of earlier releases may either apply a small patch (included in the advisory) or simply disable AES-GCM (by explicitly listing every cipher except AES-GCM in the Ciphers line of your sshd.conf)
