Description

It was discovered that glib-networking skipped hostname certificate verification if the application failed to specify the server identity. A remote attacker could use this to perform a person-in-the-middle attack and expose sensitive information.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
