Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:054: mod_ssl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mod_ssl package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:054 (mod_ssl).


A stack-based buffer overflow exists in the ssl_util_uuencode_binary function in
ssl_engine_kernel.c in mod_ssl for Apache 1.3.x. When mod_ssl is configured to
trust the issuing CA, a remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code
via a client certificate with a long subject DN.
The provided packages are patched to prevent this problem.
