Subject [users@httpd] TLS Renegotiation
Date Thu, 08 Apr 2010 13:24:31 GMT
Hello everyone.
I've an apache 2.2.11 up and running in a linux suse 10 environment and openssl 0.9.6.g version.

After a network scan they've found that I have to disable TLS Renegotiation support in my
I've seen that I can do this with SSLInsecureRenegotiation off directive in my configuration
file but this is available with apache 2.2.15.
I found this on the web:

*) SECURITY: CVE-2009-3555 (

     mod_ssl: Comprehensive fix of the TLS renegotiation prefix injection

     attack when compiled against OpenSSL version 0.9.8m or later. Introduces

     the 'SSLInsecureRenegotiation' directive to reopen this vulnerability

     and offer unsafe legacy renegotiation with clients which do not yet

     support the new secure renegotiation protocol, RFC 5746.

     [Joe Orton, and with thanks to the OpenSSL Team]

Is there some workaround to do this without upgrade my apache version???
I mean some mod_ssl configuration directives that I can set for bypass the problem/vulnerability???

Thanks in advance.
