The remote SSH server may accept password-based authentications even
when not explicitely enabled.
The remote host is running a version of SSH that is older than 3.1.2
and newer or equal to 3.0.0.
There is a vulnerability in this release that may, under some
circumstances, allow users to authenticate using a password whereas it
is not explicitly listed as a valid authentication mechanism.
An attacker may use this flaw to attempt to brute-force a password
using a dictionary attack (if the passwords used are weak).
Upgrade to version 3.1.2 of SSH, which solves this problem.
