Improper Input Validation


Severity Low
Score 2.6/10


httplib2 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, after an initial connection is made. This allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.
