Apache Commons HttpClient CVE-2012-5783 SSL Certificate Validation Security Bypass Vulnerability

Apache Commons HttpClient is 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.

Apache Commons HttpClient 3.x versions are affected.
