    3. Description:
    
    Jakarta Commons HTTPClient implements the client side of HTTP standards.
    
    It was discovered that the HTTPClient incorrectly extracted host name from
    an X.509 certificate subject's Common Name (CN) field. A man-in-the-middle
    attacker could use this flaw to spoof an SSL server using a specially
    crafted X.509 certificate. (CVE-2014-3577)
    
    For additional information on this flaw, refer to the Knowledgebase
    article in the References section.
    
    All jakarta-commons-httpclient users are advised to upgrade to these
    updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
    
    4. Solution:
