Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:600 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: apache, mod_ssl security update 2004-12-13 00:00:00 EST

Description Mark J. Cox 2004-10-28 08:58:45 EDT
The mod_digest module does not properly verify the nonce of a client
response by using a AuthNonce secret. This could allow a malicious
user who is able to sniff network traffic to conduct a replay attack
against a website using Digest protection. Note that mod_digest
implements an older version of the MD5 Digest Authentication
specification, which is known not to work with modern browsers. This
issue does not affect mod_auth_digest.
