################################################################################
# Title : OpenSSH before 7.3 Crypt CPU Consumption (DoS Vulnerability)
# Author : Kashinath T (tkashinath@secpod.com) (www.secpod.com)
# Vendor : http://www.openssh.com/
# Software : http://www.openssh.com/
# Version : OpenSSH before 7.3
# Tested on : Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Centos 7
# CVE : CVE-2016-6515
# Date : 20-10-2016
#
# NOTE:
# If the remote machine is installed and running OpenSSH version prior to 7.3,
# it does not limit the password length for authentication. Hence, to exploit
# this vulnerability' we will send a crafted data which is of 90000 characters
# in length to the 'password' field while attempting to log in to a remote
# machine via ssh with username as 'root'.
#
# For more info refer,
