How to fix?

There is no fixed version for commons-httpclient:commons-httpclient.

Overview

commons-httpclient:commons-httpclient is a HttpClient component of the Apache HttpComponents project.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Improper Certificate Validation due to not verifying that the requesting server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate. This allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.
