Sorry about #296051.

So, can we stabilize w3m-0.5.2-r4?

Comment 5 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2010-06-25 21:36:39 UTC
CVE-2010-2074 (
  istream.c in w3m 0.5.2 and possibly other versions, when
  ssl_verify_server is enabled, does not properly handle a '\0'
  character in a domain name in the (1) subject's Common Name or (2)
  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.
