Vulnerability Summary

The design of the W3C XML Signature Syntax and Processing (XMLDsig) recommendation, as implemented in products including (1) the Oracle Security Developer Tools component in Oracle Application Server 10.1.2.3, 10.1.3.4, and 10.1.4.3IM; (2) the WebLogic Server component in BEA Product Suite 10.3, 10.0 MP1, 9.2 MP3, 9.1, 9.0, and 8.1 SP6; (3) Mono prior to 2.4.2.2; (4) XML Security Library prior to 1.2.12; (5) IBM WebSphere Application Server Versions 6.0 up to and including 6.0.2.33, 6.1 up to and including 6.1.0.23, and 7.0 up to and including 7.0.0.1; (6) Sun JDK and JRE Update 14 and previous versions; (7) Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 up to and including 3.0 SP2, 3.5, and 4.0; and other products uses a parameter that defines an HMAC truncation length (HMACOutputLength) but does not require a minimum for this length, which allows malicious users to spoof HMAC-based signatures and bypass authentication by specifying a truncation length with a small number of bits.
