server version

How do I hide ssh number from clients? When I type the following command it displays server version number to end users:

ssh -v server2.example.com
OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu4, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
debug1: Reading configuration data /home/vivek/.ssh/config
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug1: Connecting to server2.example.com [123.x.y.z] port 22.
debug1: Connection established.
debug1: identity file /home/vivek/.ssh/identity type -1
debug1: identity file /home/vivek/.ssh/id_rsa type 1
debug1: Checking blacklist file /usr/share/ssh/blacklist.RSA-2048

debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_4.3
debug1: match: OpenSSH_4.3 pat OpenSSH_4*
debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0
debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu4

OR

telnet server2.example.com 22
Trying 123.x.y.z...
Connected to v.txvip1.
Escape character is '^]'.
SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_4.3

Why does OpenSSH server report its version to clients?
