The RAND_bytes function in libssh before 0.6.3, when forking is
enabled, does not properly reset the state of the OpenSSL
pseudo-random number generator (PRNG), which causes the state to be
shared between children processes and allows local users to obtain
sensitive information by leveraging a pid collision.
