[SECURITY] [DLA 169-1] axis security update

Package        : axis
Version        : 1.4-12+deb6u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-5784 CVE-2014-3596
Debian Bug     : 762444

 A vulnerability was fixed in axis, a SOAP implementation in Java:

 The getCN function in Apache Axis 1.4 and earlier does not properly verify
 that the server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's Common Name
 (CN) or subjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate, which allows
 man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via a certificate with a
 subject that specifies a common name in a field that is not the CN field.

 Thanks to Markus Koschany for providing the fixed package and David Jorm 
 and Arun Neelicattu (Red Hat Product Security) for providing the patch.
