comment root login via SSH still enabled after setting PermitRootLogin to 'no'
Thanks again. I have pasted the data into the original question. Unfortunately I cannot tell you how openssh-server was installed, as I've only recently been tasked with looking after this particular server. It's certainly a possibility!

Thanks Yanick. Have edited the results of sshd_config grep into the main post. the log grep returned: .info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages # The authpriv file has restricted access. authpriv. /var/log/secure

Now I'm a little concerned... /var/log/secure -> empty file /var/log/secure.1 -> doesn't exist /var/log/secure.2 -> empty file /var/log/secure.3 -> last entry 2 and a half weeks ago
