CVE-2009-2417 (retired)

Priority
Description
lib/ssluse.c in cURL and libcurl 7.4 through 7.19.5, when OpenSSL is used,
does not properly handle a '\0' character in a domain name in the subject's
Common Name (CN) field of an X.509 certificate, which allows
man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted
certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority, a related issue
to CVE-2009-2408.
Ubuntu-Description
sbeattie> hardy's patch for this issue was added to the end of the
quilt series; unfortunately, the build system is quirky and pushes
up patches by a name, thus the patch for this was not getting applied
at build time. Fixed in usn-1158-1.
