Re: 0Day?

Ref Link :

Securing the sshd of your customer's servers ASAP by following
atleast the following steps.

1) Change Default SSH Port
2) Disable Direct Root Login
3) Disable common wheel users like admin. Use a hard to guess wheel username
4) Disable shell access for all customers.
5) If possible allow access to SSH only from Bobcares and Customer's
ip address ( Use firewall and hosts.{allow,deny} file to do this. )

Step 1, 2 and 3 makes it hard for the users to guess ssh port and wheel username
Step 4 prevents user accounts from getting hacked.
Step 5 make it almost 100% fool proof unless someone from own network
or the client's network tries to hack.

Anyone with any solid knowledge regarding a new SSH 0-day?

Something other than rumors/blog post saying there might be one?

TIA for info!
