Comment 2 Marek Goldmann 2012-11-05 09:29:38 EST
Does it affect version 2.4.9?
Comment 3 David Jorm 2012-11-06 02:05:02 EST
Yes, it does affect 2.4.9 from what I can see. However, the issue only exists in the srpm, not the compiled rpms. Inside the source tarball there is:


Which includes:

<http:tlsClientParameters disableCNCheck="true">

If I understand correctly, the disableCNCheck option is the flaw.
Comment 4 Marek Goldmann 2012-11-13 04:04:57 EST
From what I see, this is a sample and is not used in the distribution. Do you still think it affects the package?

As per comment #3 it only affects the srpm, not the compiled rpms - as you say, it is not used in the distribution. You could legitimately say it doesn't affect the package and close this bug, but I think for a cost of a one line change to remove the disableCNCheck option, it would be better to just fix it now and be sure that if we do include the samples in the distribution in the future, we won't be affected.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-04 01:25:34 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2013-08-01 12:30:00 EDT
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
