Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

You are running a version of OpenSSH which is older than 3.4

There is a flaw in this version that can be exploited remotely to

Note that several distribution patched this hole without changing
the version number of OpenSSH. Since Nessus solely relied on the
banner of the remote SSH server to perform this check, this might
be a false positive.

If you are running a RedHat host, make sure that the command :
rpm -q openssh-server

Returns :
openssh-server-3.1p1-6


Solution : Upgrade to OpenSSH 3.4 or contact your vendor for a patch
