Portable SSH OpenSSH < 3.7.1p2 Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for the remote SSH version

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

You are running OpenSSH 3.7p1 or 3.7.1p1.

These versions are vulnerable to a flaw in the way they handle PAM
authentication and may allow a possible hacker to gain a shell on this host.

*** Note that Nessus did not detect whether PAM is being enabled
*** in the remote sshd or not, so this might be a false positive.

Solution : Upgrade to OpenSSH 3.7.1p2 or disable PAM support in sshd_config
Threat Level: High
