VPR Score: 5.9


The remote Solaris host has a misconfigured SSH server.


The remote Sun SPARC Enterprise Server has been mistakenly shipped with factory settings in the pre-installed Solaris 10 image which configures the remote SSH server insecurely. As a result, local or remote users may leverage these misconfigurations to execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the root (uid 0) user.
