Hi all.

There's a bug in sshd in the handling of the password expiry messages
returned by AIX's authentication routines, which will cause sshd to
segfault after password authentication if the user's password has expired
or is about to expire. It was originally reported by Rob v.d. Wal. It
doesn't affect any other platforms.

I recommend that anyone deploying 4.0p1 on AIX systems apply the patch in
the following bug, or wait for the 4.1p1 release (which will be some time
in the next couple of weeks). My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
