Package        : libxml-security-java
CVE ID         : CVE-2013-2172
Debian Bug     : 720375

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.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.5-1+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.5-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.5-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxml-security-java packages.
