   An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

   This update for apache-commons-httpclient fixes the following issues:

   - http/conn/ssl/SSLConnectionSocketFactory.java ignores the
     http.socket.timeout configuration setting during an SSL handshake, which
     allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (HTTPS call hang)
     via unspecified vectors. [bsc#945190, CVE-2015-5262]
   - org.apache.http.conn.ssl.AbstractVerifier does not properly 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 MITM
     attackers to spoof SSL servers via a "CN=" string in a field in the
     distinguished name (DN)
     of a certificate. [bsc#1178171, CVE-2014-3577]

   This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15:Update update project.
