Description Gill Bates 2008-07-24 04:37:01 UTC
The org.w3c.com.document that is assigned to an XMLSignature object through the document's signature element

Document doc=..;
Element sigElement = doc.get...;

XMLSignature signature = new XMLSignature(sigElement, null);

-> original document is modified

That seems to happen, if no Key Information is present in the signature Element.

Result: document is modified, future verification fails (e.g. with another signature Element).

Happens with xml-sec 1.4.2, java version

xml-sec 1.4.0 did not contain this bug.
