PuTTY 0.81 security release

LWN.net - Tor, 04/16/2024 - 16:33
Version 0.81 of the PuTTY SSH client is out with a fix for CVE-2024-31497; some users will want to update and generate new keys:

PuTTY 0.81, released today, fixes a critical vulnerability CVE-2024-31497 in the use of 521-bit ECDSA keys (ecdsa-sha2-nistp521). If you have used a 521-bit ECDSA private key with any previous version of PuTTY, consider the private key compromised: remove the public key from authorized_keys files, and generate a new key pair.

However, this only affects that one algorithm and key size. No other size of ECDSA key is affected, and no other key type is affected.
