a third party to decrypt the traffic.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of SSH which is older than (or as old as)
version 1.2.23.

The remote version of this software is vulnerable to a known plain text attack,
which may permit a possible hacker to insert encrypted packets in the client - server
stream that will be deciphered by the server, thus permiting the attacker to
execute arbitrary commands on the remote server
