openSUSE Security Update : bytefx-data-mysql (bytefx-data-mysql-1124)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The XML signature checker did not impose limits on the minimum length
of HMAC signatures in XML documents. Attackers could therefore specify
a length of e.g. 1 to make the signature appear valid and therefore
effectively bypass verification of XML documents.
