    Directly from the vulnerability description

    Apache Axis2/Java 1.6.2 and earlier does not verify that the server hostname matches a domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof SSL servers via an arbitrary valid certificate.


    I should point out no release after 1.6.2 specifically indicates they fixed that particular vulnerability. However, you should be using the current version, 1.7.7 to have the best chance of not being vulnerable due to numerous changes since 2012. Without a proof of concept code it will be difficult to prove the current version is still vulnerable. It’s literally the fix was documented as something else and simply didn’t call out this particular CVE in the change log
