		Caldera International, Inc.  Security Advisory

Subject:		Linux: mod_ssl off-by-one error
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2002-031.0
Issue date: 		2002 July 16
Cross reference:
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

	mod_ssl registers a rewrite_command hook when backward
	compatibility is enabled. The ssl_compat_directive() is called
	for every line read in a configuration file, and contains an
	off-by-one error while doing so.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package
	----------------------------------------------------------------------

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to mod_ssl-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm
					prior to mod_ssl-sxnet-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Workstation	prior to mod_ssl-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm
					prior to mod_ssl-sxnet-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Server		prior to mod_ssl-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm
					prior to mod_ssl-sxnet-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm

	OpenLinux 3.1 Workstation	prior to mod_ssl-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm
					prior to mod_ssl-sxnet-2.8.5_1.3.22-3.i386.rpm


3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
	customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
	cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
	packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
