Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_ssl AND mod_ssl is configured to use the SSLCipherSuite directive in a directory or location context. Review your web server configuration for validation. An issue has been discovered in the mod_ssl module when configured to use the "SSLCipherSuite" directive in directory or location context. If a particular location context has been configured to require a specific set of cipher suites, then a client will be able to access that location using any cipher suite allowed by the virtual host configuration.
