POI is using inadequate RSA padding and insecure mode of cipher operation. See attached report for more information.

Isn't this actually "Microsoft Office file formats use Weak Encryption, and POI faithfully matches that"?

Much as we might like to whack up the encryption settings, if the resulting file isn't readable by Office and isn't a valid Office file, then we haven't really helped...

Agree. Closing this ticket.
