Description Vincent Danen 2014-04-01 21:48:31 UTC
It was reported [1] that oVirt's Python SDK does not verify that the hostname of the remote endpoint matches the Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName as specified by its x.509 certificate in a TLS/SSL session.  This could allow man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof remote endpoints via an arbitrary yet valid certificate.
