Please double-check your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file

Any new install of master from August 3rd 2016 (f0ea6a7a164) until today
will install a default sshd_config that allows cleartext passwords for
remote ssh logins to the machine.  (Empty passwords are still disallowed).

Upgrades and normal reinstalls are unaffected, they will keep the
pre-existing /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.

4.6 is not affected.
