OpenSSH sshd minimal "banner" is necessary for negotiation. Hiding sshd's banner is not a "fix". If you disagree you should explain in detail what the "problem" is and why you think banner hiding is a "fix".

Your ssh banner before login is set in /etc/ssh/sshd_config , so in sshd_config you can set it to say
Code:

Banner none
Furthermore, after succesful login, the ssh linux splash you see is usually configured via /etc/pam.d/sshd and/or /etc/pam.d/login
In those two files, look for the line that says
Code:

session optional pam_motd.so
and comment it out:
Code:

# session optional pam_motd.so
then of course save, close, reload.

If you ask me, those banners are a complete waste of valuable screen-space (and time). First thing I kick out with a new openssh installation.
