The remote SSH server may allow execution of arbitrary code.
The remote SSH server is version 1.2.27 or earlier.
If this version was compiled against the RSAREF library, then it is
likely to be vulnerable to a buffer overflow that a remote attacker
could exploit to gain root privileges on the affected system.
To determine if you compiled ssh against the RSAREF library, type 'ssh
-V' on the remote host.
See also :
Either re-compile ssh to avoid using the RSAREF library or upgrade to
SSH 2.x or later.
