When I try to connect to my EC2 (Ubuntu 14.04.3) server with
ssh -v server, I see this at the end of the log:
debug1: read PEM private key done: type RSA debug1: Authentication succeeded (publickey). Authenticated to <domain>.com ([192.168.1.42]:12345). debug1: channel 0: new [client-session] debug1: Requesting email@example.com # <!-!-!-!-!-!- What's this? debug1: Entering interactive session. debug1: Sending environment. debug1: Sending env LANG = en_US.UTF-8 debug1: Sending env LC_CTYPE = en_US.UTF-8 Welcome to Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-55-generic x86_64)
This is my
Host server HostName domain.com User myuser IdentityFile ~/path/to/EC2Key.pem Port <portnumber>
Which seems normal. I can see two possible reasons here:
- OpenSSH is trying to make a connection to
openssh.comas a user
no-more-sessions- but that doesn't make any sense either, why?
- OpenSSH is trying to send email to
firstname.lastname@example.org. This makes even less sense, and both options seem a little creepy.
What's happening here?
