Description Scott Cantor 2009-07-14 11:59:37 UTC
Apache XML Security (C++) is affected by the vulnerability published in US-Cert VU #466161. See: http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/466161 for more information. This bug can allow an attacker to bypass authentication by inserting/modifying a small HMAC truncation length parameter in the XML Signature HMAC based SignatureMethod algorithms.
