I know that SSHing to a server as root (i.e. so that you are logged in as root after connecting) has its downsides. My question is sort of the opposite. If I connect from a server as root to a server as another account, are there still potentially security concerns there?
For example, if I have securely logged into the root account on one server and in turn connect to other servers as a single-purpose account to perform some sort of administration or backup purpose, is the fact that the account originating the connection is root a concern?
