10 The Jakarta Commons HttpClient component did not verify that the server
11 hostname matched the domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) or
12 subjectAltName field in X.509 certificates. This could allow a
13 man-in-the-middle attacker to spoof an SSL server if they had a certificate
14 that was valid for any domain name (CVE-2012-5783).
