    I do recall installing a tweak and Open SSH was installed as part of it. Any idea what tweak could've installed this? And, I saw on the news that those with OpenSSH installed are vulnerable to attacks and hackers, and that I should change my root password and user password. Should I worry? Or, does the news have no idea and just needs "news" to report on?

    Saw this: OpenSSL & OpenSSH question

    And, than this: http://www.idownloadblog.com/2015/10/28/mobile-terminal-ios-9/

    Did you install Semi-restore?

    You definitely need to change the passwords if you are going to keep OpenSSH. Failing to do that is a security risk.

    No, but It appears to be gone. Only OpenSSL is showing. Do I need OpenSSH?

    No, OpenSSH is not a requirement.
