Description

Updated jakarta-commons-httpclient and httpcomponents-client packages fix security vulnerability :

The Jakarta Commons HttpClient and Apache httpcomponents HttpClient components may be susceptible to a 'Man in the Middle Attack' due to a flaw in the default hostname verification during SSL/TLS when a specially crafted server side certificate is used (CVE-2012-6153).
