MDKSA-2004:055: apache2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the apache2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:055 (apache2).


A stack-based buffer overflow exists in the ssl_util_uuencode_binary function in
ssl_util.c in Apache. 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.
