Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:773

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:773.

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, an attacker 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.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
