The remote host is susceptible to an information disclosure attack.
When OpenSSH has S/KEY authentication enabled, it is possible to
determine remotely if an account configured for S/KEY authentication
Note that Nessus has not tried to exploit the issue, but rather only
checked if OpenSSH is running on the remote host. As a result, it
will not detect if the remote host has implemented a workaround.

A patch currently does not exist for this issue. As a workaround,
either set 'ChallengeResponseAuthentication' in the OpenSSH config to
'no' or use a version of OpenSSH without S/KEY support compiled in.
