Subject: Apache-SSL buffer overflow (fix available)

are being used, and the certificate in question must be issued by a
trusted CA.


Download Apache-SSL 1.3.22+1.46 from the usual places (see


Thanks to Ed Moyle for finding the flaw.


No thanks to anyone at all for alerting me before going
public. Cheers, guys.
