The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
The default OpenSSH configuration made it easy for remote attackers to
exhaust unauthorized connection slots and prevent other users from
being able to log in to a system. This flaw has been addressed by
enabling random early connection drops by setting MaxStartups to
10:30:100 by default. For more information, refer to the
sshd_config(5) man page. (CVE-2010-5107)
