Hi all,

due to the increase in random ssh login attempts and openssh shipping 
with default allowing root to login remotely, we have changed the openssh 
module to install WITHOUT this permission by default.

If you have doubts about your current setup, we advise that you edit your 
/etc/sshd/sshd_config and set 'PermitRootLogon no' explicitly, and 
restart your sshd daemon.

New installations and new ISO's will come with this option disabled for now.
