Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2008-01-29 09:31:41 UTC
An issue has been discovered in the mod_ssl module when configured to
use the "SSLCipherSuite" directive in directory or location context.
If a particular location context has been configured to require a
specific set of cipher suites, then a client will be able to access
that location using any cipher suite allowed by the virtual host
configuration.

This issue was reported in Apache bugzilla.

This is a fairly rare and uncommon configuration, so the security
impact is low.  We'll likely include a fix for this issue during the
next Update.
