Description Ratul Gupta 2013-11-18 08:17:48 EST
Python-swiftclient is found to be affected by a security issue, where it fails to properly verify the server SSL certificates, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing attacks via MitM (Man in the Middle attacks) and possibly leading to disclosure of sensitive information.
