    SSL errors in logs

    Hi, in my Apache server's error_ssl_log file there are a couple of distrubing entries, and I was hoping somebody would be able to shed more light on what they mean. Here they are:

    [Thu Oct 31 00:39:55 2002] [error] mod_ssl: SSL handshake failed
    (server, client (OpenSSL
    library error follows)
    [Thu Oct 31 00:39:55 2002] [error] OpenSSL: error:1406B458:SSL
    routines:GET_CLIENT_MASTER_KEY:key arg too long

    Anyone know anything about what these mean? Thanks!

    I get a lot of errors in my logs. Usually it is someone trying to break into the server. The fact that it is in your log is the good thing. Because if someone does break into the server one of the first things they do is eliminate their break in attempts in the logs by erasing them.
