    Package        : libapache-mod-ssl
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0488 CAN-2004-0700
    
    Two vulnerabilities were discovered in libapache-mod-ssl:
    
      CAN-2004-0488 - Stack-based buffer overflow in the
      ssl_util_uuencode_binary function in ssl_util.c for Apache mod_ssl,
      when mod_ssl is configured to trust the issuing CA, may allow remote
      attackers to execute arbitrary code via a client certificate with a
      long subject DN.
    
      CAN-2004-0700 - Format string vulnerability in the ssl_log function
      in ssl_engine_log.c in mod_ssl 2.8.19 for Apache 1.3.31 may allow
      remote attackers to execute arbitrary messages via format string
      specifiers in certain log messages for HTTPS.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody), these problems have been
    fixed in version 2.8.9-2.3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), CAN-2004-0488 was fixed in
    version 2.8.18, and CAN-2004-0700 will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you update your libapache-mod-ssl package.
