SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1012919
CVE Reference:   CVE-2004-0885   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 18 2005
Impact:   Host/resource access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache mod_ssl when in a certain configuration. A remote user may be able to bypass the SSLCipherSuite directive settings. VMware is affected.

It is reported that when the "SSLCipherSuite" directive is used in a directory or location context to require a restricted set of cipher suites, a remote user may be able to access the directory or location using any permitted cipher suites.

According to Red Hat, the vulnerable configuration is "fairly rare and uncommon."

Impact:   A remote user may be able to access a directory or location using any permitted cipher suites instead of the ones specified by the SSLCipherSuite directory.
Solution:   VMware has issued a fix for the VMware ESX Server.
