Async Http Client (aka AHC or async-http-client) before 1.9.0 skips X.509
certificate verification unless both a keyStore location and a trustStore
location are explicitly set, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to
spoof HTTPS servers by presenting an arbitrary certificate during use of a
typical AHC configuration, as demonstrated by a configuration that does not
send client certificates.
