Vulnerability CVE-2012-6107


Published: 2014-09-29   Modified: 2014-09-30

Description:
Apache Axis2/C does not 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 man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.
