Summary: Updated axis packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional (v. 6) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 6) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - noarch Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Optional (v. 6) - noarch 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. Apache Axis did not verify that the server hostname matched the domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName field in X.509 certificates. This could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to spoof an SSL server if they had a certificate that was valid for any domain name. (CVE-2012-5784) All users of axis are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this issue. Applications using Apache Axis must be restarted for this update to take effect. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258 5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 873252 - CVE-2012-5784 axis: Does not verify that the server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's CN or subjectAltName field of the x.509 certificate 6.
