I just want to confirm Bill's report. I had seen his post yesterday and
when I got the notice that there was an update this morning I held off
upding all of my boxes.
I tested by running freebsd-update install on a 9.3-RELEASEp33 system.
After completing the install I could no longer ssh into the box. I
tried rebooting just in case but that did not help.
As Bill said, freebsd-update rollback got the old ssh reinstalled and
I'm able to ssh into the box again.
