Description

James Forshaw discovered that, in Apache Santuario XML Security for Java, CanonicalizationMethod parameters were incorrectly validated: by specifying an arbitrary weak canonicalization algorithm, an attacker could spoof XML signatures.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
