How to fix?

A fix was pushed into the master branch but not yet published.


ca.juliusdavies:not-yet-commons-ssl is a Java SSL component library.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Security Bypass. The package does not properly verify that the server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) field of the X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.
