OPIE w/ OpenSSH Account Enumeration

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host is susceptible to an information disclosure attack.

Description :

When using OPIE for PAM and OpenSSH, it is possible for remote
attackers to determine the existence of certain user accounts.

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
does not detect if the remote host actually has OPIE for PAM

Solution :

A patch currently does not exist for this issue. As a workaround,
ensure that OPIE for PAM is not installed.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
