Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-05 08:11:03 EST
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2012-5786 to the following vulnerability:

The wsdl_first_https sample code in distribution/src/main/release/samples/wsdl_first_https/src/main/ in Apache CXF, possibly 2.6.0, 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.

Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-05 08:48:56 EST
Created cxf tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-17 [bug 873284]
Comment 2 David Jorm 2012-11-06 02:27:32 EST
Statement:

Not vulnerable. Apache CXF is shipped with several Red Hat products, but the wsdl_first_https sample is not included. Without this sample code, the flaw is not exposed.
