[SECURITY] [DLA 322-1] commons-httpclient security update

Package        : commons-httpclient
Version        : 3.1-9+deb6u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-5262

Trevin Beattie [1] discovered an issue where one could observe hanging
threads in a multi-threaded Java application. After debugging the issue,
it became evident that the hanging threads were caused by the SSL
initialization code in commons-httpclient.

This upload fixes this issue by respecting the configured SO_TIMEOUT
during SSL handshakes with the server.
