Updated axis packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

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.

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.

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.
