Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2009:318: xmlsec1

Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed
in xmlsec1:

A missing check for the recommended minimum length of the truncated
form of HMAC-based XML signatures was found in xmlsec1 prior to
1.2.12. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially-crafted
XML file that forges an XML signature, allowing the attacker to
bypass authentication that is based on the XML Signature specification
(CVE-2009-0217).

All versions of libtool prior to 2.2.6b suffers from a local
privilege escalation vulnerability that could be exploited under
certain conditions to load arbitrary code (CVE-2009-3736).

Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
Corporate products.

This update fixes this vulnerability.
