Description

Updated devtoolset-2-httpcomponents-client packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.

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.

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-2012-6153)

This issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of Red Hat Product Security.

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

All devtoolset-2-httpcomponents-client users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
