DESCRIPTION:
A security issue has been reported in Zero Install, which can be
exploited by malicious people to conduct spoofing attacks.

The security issue is caused due to the application not properly
checking if the "Common Name" field provided inside SSL server
certificates matches the requested hostname of a server. This can be
exploited to e.g. conduct Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks.

The security issue is reported in versions prior to 1.6.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.6.
