GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200210-009
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : mod_ssl
SUMMARY : cross site scripting
DATE : 2002-10-27 00:40 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

Cross-site scripting vulnerability in the mod_ssl Apache module 2.8.9
and earlier, when UseCanonicalName is off and wildcard DNS is enabled,
allows remote attackers to execute script as other web site visitors,
via the server name in an HTTPS response on the SSL port, which is used
in a self-referencing URL.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-www/mod_ssl-2.8.11 and earlier update their systems as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge mod_ssl
emerge clean
