This bug was opened on July 9 to address a security issue and it remains
a "NEW" status issue. When can we expect movement on this so that Redhat
users and RHN subscribers aren't being encouraged to use outdated and insecure
I guess it should really be "assigned" since we did start through our internal
errata process which will lead to an errata. This issue is classed as a low
priority however as the SSL renegotiation options were for a long time
considered experimental and are rarely used.
An errata has been issued which should help the problem described in this bug report.
This report is therefore being closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information

this bug report if the solution does not work for you.
