None of the Release Notes for Polycom UC Software 5.4.5 thru current 5.5.2  have any reference to Dropbear, either a known issue or resolved issue.  Also this was discussed in and an alert was posted to watch for VOIP-122152 (which isn't found in the release notes either).  Maybe someone from Polycom will jump in here and offer clarification or update.

Hello all,

2016.72 was fixed in UC Software 5.4.6 and 5.5.2


We have not had any reports on 2017.74 and will look into this.
