The dbm and shm session cache code in mod_ssl before 2.8.7-1.3.23, and
Apache-SSL before 1.3.22+1.46, does not properly initialize memory
using the i2d_SSL_SESSION function, which allows remote attackers to
use a buffer overflow to execute arbitrary code via a large client
certificate that is signed by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA),
which produces a large serialized session.
