Description

HTTPS connections initiated by Hammer to the API server do not perform validation of the server SSL/TLS certificate, allowing for a man-in-the-middle attack against the user.

#12400 has introduced automatic certificate verification when an SSL CA is explicitly configured, but the default for HTTPS connections remains off. It could be verified against the system CA store.
