Updated owasp-esapi-java packages fix CVE-2013-5679

Publication date: 11 Feb 2015
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 4
CVE: CVE-2013-5679


Updated owasp-esapi-java packages fix security vulnerability:

The authenticated-encryption feature in the symmetric-encryption
implementation in the OWASP Enterprise Security API (ESAPI) for Java 2.x
before 2.1.0 does not properly resist tampering with serialized ciphertext,
which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass intended cryptographic
protection mechanisms via an attack against authenticity in the default
configuration, involving a null MAC and a zero MAC length (CVE-2013-5679).
