SSH Access Security

Hi,

My ISP gives SSH Access on shared hosting? Is this a security risk?

RE: SSH Access Security
Well it is a security risk if they firstly leave it on default port, have no firewall to block brute force attemps. Though I do hope most ISPs block such things and change the default port.

Alternatively if they use cPanel they can install Cloudlinux with CageFS which allows you to have SSH Access in a secure manner.
