The remote SSH server is prone to a buffer overflow attack.
The remote host is using freeSSHd, a free SSH server for Windows.
The version of freeSSHd installed on the remote host does not validate
the key exchange strings sent by a SSH client. This can result in a
buffer overflow and possibly a compromise of the host if an
unauthenticated attacker sends a long key exchange string.
Upgrade to FreeSSHd version 1.0.10 or later.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.2
Public Exploit Available : true
Family: Gain a shell remotely
Nessus Plugin ID: 21580 (freesshd_key_exchange_overflow.nasl)
