With the new - 1 Oct - copyright law in spain you could face a 2 year
term at state jail, just for posession of a tool capable to decode the
ACSS algorithm.

So the "misguided legal department" at RH have done a good move, at

OpenSSH users should know they can face prision in some countries - well
in Spain - if you install upstream OpenSSH.
