[GLSA-200410-21] Apache 2, mod_ssl: Bypass of SSLCipherSuite directive

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Apache 2, mod_ssl: Bypass of SSLCipherSuite directive

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-21
(Apache 2, mod_ssl: Bypass of SSLCipherSuite directive)


A flaw has been found in mod_ssl where the "SSLCipherSuite" directive could
be bypassed in certain configurations if it is used in a directory or
location context to restrict the set of permited cipher suites.

Impact

A remote attacker could gain access to a location using any cipher suite
permited by the server/virtual host configuration, disregarding the
restrictions by "SSLCipherSuite" for that location.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
