    3. Description:
    
    Apache Axis is an implementation of SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol).
    It can be used to build both web service clients and servers.
    
    It was discovered that Axis incorrectly extracted the 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-2014-3596)
    
    For additional information on this flaw, refer to the Knowledgebase article
    in the References section.
    
    This issue was discovered by David Jorm and Arun Neelicattu of Red Hat
    Product Security.
    
    All axis users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
    contain a backported patch to correct this issue. Applications using Apache
    Axis must be restarted for this update to take effect.
    
    4. Solution:
