The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
The Jakarta Commons HttpClient component did not verify that the
server hostname matched the domain name in the subject's Common Name
(CN) or subjectAltName field in X.509 certificates. This could allow a
man-in-the- middle attacker to spoof an SSL server if they had a
certificate that was valid for any domain name. (CVE-2012-5783)
Applications using the Jakarta Commons HttpClient component must be
restarted for this update to take effect.
