Information on CVSS is documented
in HP Customer Notice: HPSN-2008-002
HP has provided the following workaround to resolve the vulnerability in
HP-UX Apache Web Server.
Note: The HP-UX Apache Web Server with default configuration is not
vulnerable because the default configuration does not support the DH ciphers.
Since the HP-UX Apache Web Server might be vulnerable if both EDH and
EXPORT ciphers have been enabled, run the following commands to check:
# openssl s_client -connect <server_name>:443 -cipher "EDH"
# openssl s_client -connect <server_name>:443 -cipher "EXP"
If both connections succeed, then the following workaround should be
Change the following Apache configuration settings to disable the
vulnerable DH and EXPORT ciphers:
Example from the default configuration file:
1. Edit the Apache SSL configuration file: "httpd-ssl.conf".
2. Change "+EXP" to "!EXP" or append ":!EXP" if not in the list:
