SSH Compression Error Checking

info Nessus Plugin ID 104411
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host supports ssh compression, but actually using ssh compression causes errors.


The remote host supports algorithms that can use compression. But when ssh attempts to use compression for that communication, the connections do not succeed.
