A flaw has been found in the OpenSSL TLS server extension affecting OpenSSL 0.9.8f through 0.9.8o, 1.0.0 and 1.0.0a. This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2010-3864

The following applications are affected by this vulnerability:

"Any OpenSSL based TLS server is vulnerable if it is multi-threaded and uses OpenSSL's internal caching mechanism. Servers that are multi-process and/or disable internal session caching are NOT affected.

In particular the Apache HTTP server (which never uses OpenSSL internal caching) and Stunnel (which includes its own workaround) are NOT affected." [1]
