Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2013-164
Advisory Release Date: 2014-09-15 22:35 Pacific
Severity: Medium

Issue Overview:

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 )
