According to redhat, there is already an upstream patch for httpclient, and it differs from yours in some ways: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2012-5783 Please coordinate with them on that fix. > I've tested the patches and they work ok. So I think it's fine to > upload. Please coordinate the axis patch with redhat since they don't have a solution in their bug tracker yet either. They will review your work: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=CVE-2012-5784 Best wishes, Mike __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
