The SSH server running on the remote host is affected by a security
According to its banner, the version of OpenSSH running on the remote
host is prior to 7.2. It is, therefore, affected by a security bypass
vulnerability due to a flaw in ssh(1) that is triggered when it falls
back from untrusted X11 forwarding to trusted forwarding when the
SECURITY extension is disabled by the X server. This can result in
untrusted X11 connections that can be exploited by a remote attacker.
