Description Scott Williams 2009-05-01 15:11:40 UTC
The default sshd_config allows root login.  In the great majority of systems, this is not necessary, and arguably never recommended.

It would have minimal impact on usability for users , and would greatly help security to add to the default /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

AllowRootLogin No
