  Yes, the OpenSSL vulnerability can be triggered through mod_ssl.

  But you don't need a new mod_ssl version to be safe against it. Only
bring OpenSSL up to date, and your mod_ssl module will be safe.

And what about apache-2.0.39 with SSL enabled?
Nothing on apache.org so far.
apache-2.0.x includes code from the mod_ssl project I guess, right?


The key to the openssl issue is the same here, get fixed openssl sources,
and recompile with them as the reference bases just as with mod-ssl
appache 1.3.x.

Now for those with less then trust worthy local users <smile>, and relying
upon apache 1.3.x/mod-ssl/libmm compiles, there is the additional question
of whther there is a new mm package available.

Thanks,

OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
