Local attackers may be able to access sensitive information.
According to its banner, the version of OpenSSH running on the remote
host is earlier than 5.8p2. Such versions may be affected by a local
information disclosure vulnerability that could allow the contents of
the host's private key to be accessible by locally tracing the
execution of the ssh-keysign utility. Having the host's private key
may allow the impersonation of the host.
Note that installations are only vulnerable if ssh-rand-helper was
enabled during the build process, which is not the case for *BSD, OS
X, Cygwin and Linux.
