Synopsis :

It may be possible to crash the SSH server on the remote host.

Description :

According to its banner, the remote SSH server is affected by one or
more of the following vulnerabilities :

- CVE-2002-1357 (incorrect length)

- CVE-2002-1358 (lists with empty elements/empty strings)

- CVE-2002-1359 (large packets and large fields)

- CVE-2002-1360 (string fields with zeros)

The impact of successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities varies
