2.5 Bash Prompt Characters Can Break SSH Connections (Bug ID 13572569)

The default shell for root on Oracle Linux platforms is bash. When Oracle VDI runs ssh commands, it receives any characters generated by the user's bash environment, such as scripts and aliases in $HOME/.bashrc.

If Oracle VDI interprets any characters received as an escape character, it breaks the SSH connection. This can cause errors, for example, when you add a host to a Oracle VM VirtualBox desktop provider.
