==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.04
- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Applications using Lasso could be made to allow unintended access.

Software Description:
- lasso: Liberty Alliance and SAML protocol Library

Details:

assertions in a SAML response were properly signed. An attacker
could possibly use this to impersonate users or otherwise bypass
access controls.
