Hardcoded SSH Host Key Detection
Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 7281
SynopsisA hardcoded, non-unique SSH host key has been detected.
DescriptionThe remote host is using a hardcoded, non-unique SSH host key. This may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to carry out impersonation, man-in-the-middle, or passive decryption attacks, resulting in sensitive information exposure.
SolutionWhere possible, users of affected devices should manually replace SSH host keys so that they are unique to the device.
