Package : libapache-mod-ssl, apache-ssl
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no

Ed Moyle recently found a buffer overflow in Apache-SSL and mod_ssl.
With session caching enabled, mod_ssl will serialize SSL session
variables to store them for later use. These variables were stored in
a buffer of a fixed size without proper boundary checks.

To exploit the overflow, the server must be configured to require client
certificates, and an attacker must obtain a carefully crafted client
certificate that has been signed by a Certificate Authority which is
trusted by the server. If these conditions are met, it would be possible
for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the server.

This problem has been fixed in version 1.3.9.13-4 of Apache-SSL and
version 2.4.10-1.3.9-1potato1 of libapache-mod-ssl for the stable
Debian distribution as well as in version 1.3.23.1+1.47-1 of
Apache-SSL and version 2.8.7-1 of libapache-mod-ssl for the testing
and unstable distribution of Debian.

We recommend that you upgrade your Apache-SSL and mod_ssl packages.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
