Description Kristian Fiskerstrand (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-03-17 21:54:13 UTC
From ${URL}:

WebKitGTK+ [1] prior to 2.7.92 performed TLS certificate verification
too late, after sending an HTTP request rather than before. The issue
may be corrected for WebKitGTK+ 2.6.5 and WebKitGTK+ 2.4.8 using the
patch at [2]. Applications are affected if they use the WebKit2GTK+ API
with WEBKIT_TLS_ERRORS_POLICY_FAIL. (This policy is the default in
WebKitGTK+ 2.6.2 and later; applications using earlier versions of
WebKitGTK+ must opt-in to certificate verification failures by calling
webkit_web_context_set_tls_errors_policy.) Applications using the
original WebKitGTK+ 1 API are unaffected because they must handle
certificate verification themselves.

Please assign a CVE for this issue.

webkit 2.4.9 just got out, possibly fixed there?

Seems like it did (from release notes):

o Check TLS errors as soon as they are set in the SoupMessage to prevent any data from being sent to the server in case of invalid certificate.

2.4.9 and 2.6.6 in tree have fixes for this according to ChangeLog/NEWS.
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-03-09 15:34:18 UTC
This is already fixed in current stable versions in the tree
