Async Http Client (aka async-http-client) before 2.0.35 can be tricked into connecting to a host different from the one extracted by java.net.URI if a '?' character occurs in a fragment identifier. Similar bugs were previously identified in cURL (CVE-2016-8624) and Oracle Java 8 java.net.URL.
main/java/com/ning/http/client/AsyncHttpClientConfig.java in Async Http Client (aka AHC or async-http-client) before 1.9.0 does not require a hostname match during verification of X.509 certificates, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof HTTPS servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.
Async Http Client (aka AHC or async-http-client) before 1.9.0 skips X.509 certificate verification unless both a keyStore location and a trustStore location are explicitly set, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof HTTPS servers by presenting an arbitrary certificate during use of a typical AHC configuration, as demonstrated by a configuration that does not send client certificates.
