Subject [jira] [Commented] (AXIS-2905) Insecure certificate validation CVE-2014-3596
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2014 03:47:18 GMT


David Jorm commented on AXIS-2905:

Please note that the proposed patch should apply cleanly to SVN HEAD. It may not apply cleanly
if the CVE-2012-5784 patch has already been applied.

> It was found that the fix for CVE-2012-5784 was incomplete. The code added to check that
the server hostname matches the domain name in the subject's CN field was flawed. This can
be exploited by a Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack where the attacker can spoof a valid certificate
using a specially crafted subject.
