Subject: Apache HttpClient CVE request  [VU#153049]

Hello all,

Per the Apache HttpClient 4.1.1 release notes:


"The HttpClient 4.1.1 is a bug fix release that addresses a number of 
issues reported since release 4.1, including one critical security issue 
(HTTPCLIENT-1061). All users of HttpClient 4.0.x and 4.1 are strongly 
encouraged to upgrade.
* [HTTPCLIENT-1061] Fixed critical bug causing Proxy-Authorization 
header to be sent to the target host when tunneling requests through a 
proxy server that requires authentication.
   Contributed by Oleg Kalnichevski <olegk at>"

It doesn't look like this has received a CVE identifier and I didn't 
want to duplicate anyone by assigning one from our pool.  Could someone 
please assign one?
