[slackware-security]  mod_ssl (SSA:2005-251-02)

New mod_ssl packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.  If "SSLVerifyClient optional" was
configured in the global section of the config file, it could improperly
override "SSLVerifyClient require" in a per-location section.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2005-2700

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mod_ssl-2.8.24_1.3.33-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to
  mod_ssl-2.8.24-1.3.33.  From the CHANGES file:
    Fix a security issue (CAN-2005-2700) where "SSLVerifyClient require" was
    not enforced in per-location context if "SSLVerifyClient optional" was
    configured in the global virtual host configuration.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2005-2700
  (* Security fix *)

Installation instructions:
+------------------------+

First, stop apache:

# apachectl stop

The upgrade will should save the important config files for mod_ssl,
nevertheless it's a good idea to backup any keys/certificates you wish
to save for mod_ssl (in /etc/apache/ssl.*), then upgrade mod_ssl:

# upgradepkg mod_ssl-2.8.24_1.3.33-i486-1.tgz

If necessary, restore any mod_ssl config files.

Finally, restart apache:

# apachectl startssl
