A denial of service flaw was found in the way SSL module implementation
of Python 3 performed matching of the certificate's name in the case
it contained many '*' wildcard characters. A remote attacker, able to
obtain valid certificate with its name containing a lot of '*' wildcard
characters could use this flaw to cause denial of service (excessive
CPU consumption) by issuing request to validate such a certificate
for / to an application using the Python's ssl.match_hostname()
functionality (CVE-2013-2099).
