OpenSSH client roaming key disclosure bug CVE-2016-0777 and CVE-2016-0778
Lots of info here:
tl;dr: Explicitly disable roaming in the client config. Don't connect to ssh servers you don't trust. Use an ssh agent rather than letting the client read the keys directly.
Not a huge impact for us since it's in the ssh client, and though I'm sure a handful of people do use the firewall to ssh out to other places, it's not something that is in common practice. The fix will be pulled in to 2.3 as soon as it hits FreeBSD, but the jury is still out on whether or not it warrants another 2.2.x release.

Why the %#&* isn't the default OFF for an "experimental feature?" Shame on OpenSSH.

FTFY. And indeed. That seems to be the real question.
