Hi folks,

AFAICS, Debian’s Apache2.2 is still vulnerable to CRIME.

Well, AFAIK, CRIME is thought to be fixed on the browser sides, by them
simply not using compression with TLS.
While this helps in many cases, IMHO it's not enough and I'd rather have
a way to force the server to secure things (just as it is, AFAIK, done
with the BEAST attack).

A feature to disable compression for mod_ssl has been backported to

Can we cherry-pick this?

And perhaps enable it per default in mod_ssl's config.
