The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.
An updated mod_ssl package for Apache that fixes a format string
vulnerability is now available.
The mod_ssl module provides strong cryptography for the Apache Web
server via the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security
A format string issue was discovered in mod_ssl for Apache 1.3 which
can be triggered if mod_ssl is configured to allow a client to proxy
to remote SSL sites. In order to exploit this issue, a user who is
authorized to use Apache as a proxy would have to attempt to connect
to a carefully crafted hostname via SSL. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0700 to this issue.
Users of mod_ssl should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
