> https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2015-5262 : http/conn/ssl/SSLConnectionSocketFactory.java
in Apache HttpComponents HttpClient before 4.3.6 ignores the http.socket.timeout configuration
setting during an SSL handshake, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(HTTPS call hang) via unspecified vectors.

> https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2012-5783
> Apache Commons HttpClient 3.x, as used in Amazon Flexible Payments Service (FPS) merchant
Java SDK and other products, does not verify that the server hostname matches a domain name
in the subject's Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate, which
allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.
> Hence, HttpClient version should be updated.
