From: Pat Riehecky <riehecky-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: jakarta-commons-httpclient on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Wednesday 20th February 2013 19:16:39 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: jakarta-commons-httpclient security update
Issue Date:        2013-02-19
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2012-5783
--

The Jakarta Commons HttpClient component did not verify that the server
hostname matched the domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) or
subjectAltName field in X.509 certificates. This could allow a man-in-the-
middle attacker to spoof an SSL server if they had a certificate that 
was valid
for any domain name. (CVE-2012-5783)

Applications using the Jakarta Commons HttpClient component must be 
restarted
for this update to take effect.
