I have just done a clean install over sus 8.0 on one of our servers.
I noticed that I am now able to login as root over ssh.
I know in 7.3 I used to be able to set in /etc/rc.config to disable remote
root access, but as of the new config changes in 8 I can't find where to
SuSE appear to have changed quite a bit between 7.3 and 8, which
can be rather annoying.
Assuming things are reasonably standard check out /etc/ssh/sshd_config
and look for the line "PermitRootLogin yes" change the yes to a no
then do "rcsshd restart"
