Updated jakarta-commons-httpclient packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

Jakarta Commons HTTPClient implements the client side of HTTP standards.

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 jakarta-commons-httpclient users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
