CAN-2004-0488 mod_ssl ssl_util_uuencode_binary() stack overflow
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:54 EST
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.
CAN-2004-0488 Affects: 2.1AS 2.1WS 2.1ES 2.1AW
This has been fixed with RHSA-2004:245-01.
