Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-08-20 06:46:53 UTC
It was discovered that HttpResource and FileBackedHttpResource implementations in OpenSAML Java and Shibboleth IdP did not enable hostname verification when using TLS connections. Additionaly, OpenSAML Java makes use of Jakarta Commons HttpClient version 3.x, which does not perform verification of the server hostname against the server's X.508 certificate (CVE-2012-5783). This flaw can be exploited by a Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack, where the attacker can spoof a valid certificate using a specially crafted subject.

Comment 4 Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-08-20 07:29:20 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of OpenSAML Java as shipped with Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 6, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5 and 6, Red Hat JBoss JBoss Operations Network 3, and Red Hat JBoss Portal 6. These products use a version of Jakarta Commons HttpClient that contains a fix for CVE-2012-5783.

Fuse ESB 4 and Fuse Services Framework 2.3 and 2.4 are now in a reduced support phase receiving only Critical impact security fixes. This issue has been rated as having Important security impact and is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates.
