Hi All,

As per CVE-2019-17498 there is a vulnerability with libssh2 version 1.9.0(Please see below more detail). Can you please confirm the official release date of libssh2 having CVE-2019-17498 vulnerability fix.

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.

With Best Regards
