CVE-2013-4238 (retired)

Priority
Description
The ssl.match_hostname function in the SSL module in Python 2.6 through 3.4
does not properly handle a '\0' character in a domain name in the Subject
Alternative Name 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.
