Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-06-02 08:11:09 EDT
A stack-based buffer overflow in the ssl_util_uuencode_binary
function in ssl_util.c for Apache mod_ssl when mod_ssl is
configured to trust the issuing CA, and "FakeBasicAuth" is
being used, could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via a client certificate with a long subject DN.  Public
to full-disclosure on 17May.  Fixed Apache 2 CVS 25May

It is quite unlikely that users will have a vulnerable configuration
of Apache, therefore this is of low risk.

(separate bug #125048  to track RHEL2.1 as mod_ssl was separate)
