Subject [jira] [Reopened] (HTTPCLIENT-1265) Insercure certificate validation CVE-2012-5783
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2012 19:49:21 GMT

Alberto Fernández reopened HTTPCLIENT-1265:

Hi Oleg

I know HttpClient 3 is EOL, but it's used widely in linux distros (basically because axis
1.4 is still used and depends on httpclient 3).

This patch have been commited to  Debian package, and it would be great if you can apply to
the ASF repository, so other distros can take the fixed version from the SVN.

The patch is a mix of : backport from httpclient 4.2, some bites from apache synapse and some
refactor of my own (basically splitting in smaller functions).

If you can also do a fast review to see if i've done a obvious mistake, i would very grateful.

Thanks for your time and your patience

> 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.
