RHSA-2005-773: mod_ssl

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mod_ssl packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated mod_ssl package for Apache that corrects a security issue is now
available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

The mod_ssl module provides strong cryptography for the Apache Web
server via the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security
(TLS) protocols.

A flaw was discovered in mod_ssl's handling of the "SSLVerifyClient"
directive. This flaw occurs if a virtual host is configured
using "SSLVerifyClient optional" and a directive "SSLVerifyClient
required" is set for a specific location. For servers configured in this
fashion, a possible hacker may be able to access resources that should otherwise
be protected, by not supplying a client certificate when connecting. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2005-2700 to this issue.

Users of mod_ssl should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to correct this issue.
