Subject: openssh CVE-2008-1657 question

Out of curiousity, CVE-2008-1657 should only affect 4.4-4.9, correct?
The ForceCommand functionality was introduced in 4.4.

It would be nice if the CVE entry made note of this.

Would be even nicer if the boneheads over at SecurityFocus wouldn't go

Somehow I don't think that's accurate.
