Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:244 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: apache security update 2003-09-22 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2003-07-10 12:33:13 UTC
Certain sequences of per-directory renegotiations and the SSLCipherSuite
directive being used to upgrade from a weak ciphersuite to a strong one could
result in the weak ciphersuite being used in place of the strong one.

This issue affects the mod_ssl shipped with all variants of Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 2.1.

Very few sites use the (experimental) per-directory SSL renegotiation directives
and would be vulnerable to this issue.

This is Bug 98852 for Red Hat Linux.

Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2003-07-10 12:34:06 UTC
We are marking this as low priority and are unlikely to release an errata to
just fix this issue.  

Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2003-09-22 08:39:09 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
