this python project is vulnerable to MITM as it fails to verify the ssl validity of the remote
destination.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LIBCLOUD-55
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LIBCLOUD-55
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
            Reporter: dave b ^^




this python project is vulnerable to MITM as it fails to verify the ssl validity of the remote
destination.
urllib / urllib2, httplib.SHTTPConnection do not verify ssl at all by default.
from base.py
class ConnectionKey(object):
""" A Base Connection class to derive from.
""" conn_classes = (httplib.HTTPConnection, httplib.HTTPSConnection)

.... def connect(self, host=None, port=None):
..... connection = self.conn_classesself.secure

this request can be MITMed leading to the compromise of a users API key - where a secured
https connection was requested, but can be MITM'ed.
