What version of SSH / OpenSSH is the latest version of ESXi 6 running?

I am also needing the version number of SSH / OpenSSH in the latest HPE image of ESXi.

Nevermind. I wasn't able to run the HPE image as a VM (need real HP hardware), and in vanilla ESXI 6 VMware removed the -v version parameter from SSH. They should get a slap on the wrist.

My purpose here on this is in regards to OpenSSH vulnerabilities.

Other than integrated drivers, I'm not sure what the difference is between a VMware release and vendor release of ESXi. Vulnerabilities may be the same.

Anyways, keep that SSH service off when not using it :)
