SSH Protocol Version 1 Session Key Retrieval

high Nessus Plugin ID 10882
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 service offers an insecure cryptographic protocol.


The remote SSH daemon supports connections made using the version 1.33 and/or 1.5 of the SSH protocol.

These protocols are not completely cryptographically safe so they should not be used.


Disable compatibility with version 1 of the SSH protocol.
