CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2014:1146

HttpClient is an HTTP/1.1 compliant HTTP agent implementation based on
httpcomponents HttpCore.

It was discovered that the HttpClient incorrectly extracted host name from
an X.509 certificate subject’s Common Name (CN) field. A man-in-the-middle
attacker could use this flaw to spoof an SSL server using a specially
crafted X.509 certificate. (CVE-2014-3577)

For additional information on this flaw, refer to the Knowledgebase
article in the References section.

All httpcomponents-client users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
