Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_ssl AND the Apache server is configured to use a malicious certificate revocation list. Review your web server configuration for validation. An off-by-one stack overflow was discovered in the mod_ssl CRL verification callback. In order to exploit this issue the Apache server would need to be configured to use a malicious certificate revocation list (CRL)
