 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).
