Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:081 (openssh).


In some circumstances, the sshd server may not honor the 'from=' option that can
be associated with a key in a user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file if multiple
keys are listed. This could permit key-based logins from hosts which should not
be permited access.
