GLSA-200410-21 : Apache 2, mod_ssl: Bypass of SSLCipherSuite directive
High Nessus Plugin ID 15545
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-21 (Apache 2, mod_ssl: Bypass of SSLCipherSuite directive)
A flaw has been found in mod_ssl where the 'SSLCipherSuite' directive could be bypassed in certain configurations if it is used in a directory or location context to restrict the set of allowed cipher suites.
A remote attacker could gain access to a location using any cipher suite allowed by the server/virtual host configuration, disregarding the restrictions by 'SSLCipherSuite' for that location.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Apache 2 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=www-servers/apache-2.0.52' # emerge '>=www-servers/apache-2.0.52' All mod_ssl users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=net-www/mod_ssl-2.8.20' # emerge '>=net-www/mod_ssl-2.8.20'
