Re: Security-Assessment.com Advisory: Oracle JRE - java.net.URLConnection class - Same-of-Origin (SOP) Policy Bypass

Hey all,
I think it's Oracle bad.
I reported to Oracle this issue back on april 20th and probably Oracle
when Roberto reported the same stuff on August just said "Thank you" and
nothing more to Roberto.

Also Oracle seems to do mass credit so everyone can think that anyone
found anything among the 29 advisories :D

Anyway, I'll post the advisory today clarification :)

Cheers 
Stefano

My understanding is that Stefano Di Paola of Minded Security reported
this back in April; and further, the feature was a part of reasonably
well-documented functionality of Java pretty much ever since:

"Two hosts are considered equivalent if both host names can be
resolved into the same IP addresses"

This was a pretty horrible design, so it's good to see it gone, though.
