Apache Axis and Axis2/Java SSL Certificate Validation Security Bypass Vulnerability

Apache Axis and Axis2/Java are prone to a security-bypass vulnerability because the application fails to properly validate SSL certificates from the server.

Successfully exploiting this issue allows attackers to perform man-in-the-middle attacks or impersonate trusted servers, which will aid in further attacks.

The following versions are vulnerable:

Apache Axis 1.4
Apache Axis2/Java 1.6.2
