CVE-2001-1473 Scanner Detail

SSH (Secure Shell) is a protocol used for secure remote login and file transfer between computers over an unsecured network. It is commonly used in the administration of server infrastructure and network devices. SSH provides a secure and encrypted channel for communication between the client and server, ensuring that sensitive data such as login credentials are protected from eavesdropping and tampering.

However, a design flaw in the SSH-1 protocol, known as CVE-2001-1473, was identified that allowed an attacker to execute a man-in-the-middle attack. The flaw occurs when a malicious server establishes two concurrent sessions with the same session ID, allowing the attacker to intercept and modify sensitive information being transmitted between the client and server.

When exploited, the vulnerability can lead to a range of damaging consequences, including the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive data, unauthorized access to critical infrastructure, and loss of business-critical information. Attackers could potentially obtain user privileges on other hosts running an SSH-1 server, resulting in widespread damage.
