Description

httplib2 0.7.2, 0.8, and earlier, after an initial connection is made, does not 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 man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-python-httplib2
  • suse-upgrade-sle-sdk-release

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
