    Oleg Kalnichevski discovered that httpcomponents-client, a Java library
    for building HTTP-aware applications, can misinterpret a malformed
    authority component in request URIs passed to the library as
    java.net.URI object and pick the wrong target host for request
    execution.
    
    For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version
