Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2013-2014 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
It was discovered that httplib2 only validated SSL certificates on the
first request to a connection, and didn't report validation failures
on subsequent requests. If a remote attacker were able to perform a
man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could possibly be exploited in
certain scenarios to alter or compromise confidential information in
applications that used the httplib2 library.
Update the affected python-httplib2 package.
Risk factor :
Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.6
