openSUSE-SU-2020:1873-1: important: Security update for apache-commons-httpclient
openSUSE Security Update: Security update for apache-commons-httpclient

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2020:1873-1
Rating: important
References: #1178171 #945190
Cross-References: CVE-2014-3577 CVE-2015-5262
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 15.1

An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.


This update for apache-commons-httpclient fixes the following issues:

- http/conn/ssl/ ignores the
http.socket.timeout configuration setting during an SSL handshake, which
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (HTTPS call hang)
via unspecified vectors. [bsc#945190, CVE-2015-5262]
- org.apache.http.conn.ssl.AbstractVerifier does not properly verify that
the server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's Common Name
(CN) or subjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate, which allows MITM
attackers to spoof SSL servers via a "CN=" string in a field in the
distinguished name (DN)
of a certificate. [bsc#1178171, CVE-2014-3577]

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15:Update update project.
