F-Secure SSH Password Authentication Policy Evasion
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 1966
SynopsisThe remote host may give an attacker information useful for future attacks.
DescriptionThe remote host is running F-Secure SSH. This version contains a bug which may allow a user to log in using a password even though the server policy disallows it. An attacker may exploit this flaw to set up a dictionary attack against the remote SSH server and eventually get access to this host.
SolutionUpgrade F-Secure SSH to a version greater than 3.1.
