It was discovered that w3m is affected by the previously published
'null prefix attack', caused by incorrect handling of NULL characters
in X.509 certificates. If an attacker is able to get a
carefully-crafted certificate signed by a trusted Certificate
Authority, the attacker could use the certificate during a
man-in-the-middle attack and potentially confuse w3m into accepting it
by mistake. (CVE-2010-2074)
