Ruby Net::HTTPS library certificates validation cryptographic vulnerability
SecurityVulns ID:8200
Threat Level:
Description:Certificate's CN field is not validated against DNS name, making it's possible to use valid certificate with wrong CN.
Affected:RUBY : ruby 1.8
 CVE-2007-5162 (The connect method in lib/net/http.rb in the (1) Net::HTTP and (2) Net::HTTPS libraries in Ruby 1.8.5 and 1.8.6 does not verify that the commonName (CN) field in a server certificate matches the domain name in an HTTPS request, which makes it easier for remote attackers to intercept SSL transmissions via a man-in-the-middle attack or spoofed web site.)
