Comment 2 Mark Blevis 2003-08-08 16:12:16 UTC
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users and RHN subscribers aren't being encouraged to use outdated and insecure 
software packages?

Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2003-08-09 17:03:41 UTC
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.  

Comment 4 Mark J. Cox 2003-09-04 07:40:32 UTC
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
on the solution and/or where to find the updated files, please follow the link below. You may reopen 
this bug report if the solution does not work for you.
