Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for a buffer overflow in freeSSHd

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The version of freeSSHd installed on the remote host does not validate
the key exchange strings sent by a SSH client. This can result in a
buffer overflow and possibly a compromise of the host if an
unauthenticated attacker sends a long key exchange string.
