I don't recommend anyone actually do this, because 
 a) it serves no purpose (it certainly doesn't make you any more
    secure, or even discourage any attackers)

 b) The version string is a part of the protocol itself, required by
    the protocol specification

 c) you will be making life harder for auditors, system
    administrators, and so 

If you're really determined, though, the strings are defined in
