             Summary: add '-q' to ssh execution in ssh_runner.py
                 Key: BIT-1498
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1498
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Patch
          Components: BroControl
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: scampbell

When using broctl in an environment with login banners, they will be displayed in the broctl command.  In the event that they can not be configured away on the sshd end using '-q' avoids displaying the banner on the client side.

The patch is trivial:
