Easy enough. At the bottom of your sshd_config file their should be a line that says

Banner /etc/issue.net

So there's your answer go edit issue.net to your liking.

P.S. this isn't really a security issue.

not really, if someone wants to know it they can always finsd out. anyway issue.net has nothing to do with ssh specifically, it is shown with all network connections, telnet etc...

If you mean banner as in changing the printed OpenSSH *version*, we already handled the where and why not. Please use the search function.

If you want to change the banner to hide a vulnerability in the version that you're currently running, it's just a bad idea. Most scripted tools just check for SSH. If it answers, they test it regardless of the version.
