Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCLIENT-1265) Insercure certificate validation CVE-2012-5783
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2012 13:06:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1265?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13503185#comment-13503185

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCLIENT-1265:

HttpClient 3.x has been at the end of life for almost two years already. HC 3.x is no longer
supported and maintained. If you insist, I can commit the patch _without_ any review to the
ASF repository. However, there will never be a official release from the HC 3.x code line.

> Using JSSE you must manually validate server name you're connecting to matches one of
the names provided by the certificate. So you can detect a man-in-the-middle type attack with
a valid certificado for other site.
