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

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.
