FreeBSD : ruby-saml -- XML signature wrapping attack (3fcd52b2-4510-11e6-a15f-00248c0c745d)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92006
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionRubySec reports :
ruby-saml prior to version 1.3.0 is vulnerable to an XML signature wrapping attack in the specific scenario where there was a signature that referenced at the same time 2 elements (but past the scheme validator process since 1 of the element was inside the encrypted assertion).
ruby-saml users must update to 1.3.0, which implements 3 extra validations to mitigate this kind of attack.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
