Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55681


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


OpenSAML developer reports :

The Shibboleth software relies on the OpenSAML libraries to perform verification of signed XML messages such as attribute queries or SAML assertions. Both the Java and C++ versions are vulnerable to a so-called 'wrapping attack' that allows a remote, unauthenticated attacker to craft specially formed messages that can be successfully verified, but contain arbitrary content.


Update the affected package.
