Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 551618
bad default configuration for SSH
Last modified: 2010-06-07 03:26:36 EDT
Description of problem:
In my fresh installation of Fedora 12, discovered that the SSH server is enabled by default. SSHD is load in Runlevel 2 to 5, it use the port 22 and 'PermitRootLogin' is activate.
Also, SSH is enabled as "trusted service" in the fire-wall.
It is normal?
It is an error?
I think is dangerous for the security of OS, no?
This is an standard. The ssh service is secure and the installer enforces strong passwords.
