1. Summary:

An updated devtoolset-2-axis package that fixes one security issue is now
available for Red Hat Developer Toolset 2.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security

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 host name 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 devtoolset-2-axis users are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
