The SSH server on the remote host is affected by a memory corruption
According to its banner, the version of OpenSSH running on the remote
host is version 6.2 or 6.3. It is, therefore, affected by a memory
corruption vulnerability in post-authentication when the AES-GCM cipher
is used for the key exchange. Exploitation of this vulnerability could
lead to arbitrary code execution.
Note that installations are only vulnerable if built against an OpenSSL
library that supports AES-GCM.
