Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-05-30 08:51:53 EDT
A flaw was found in the way Apache CXF enforced child policies of WS-SecurityPolicy 1.1 on the client side. In certain circumstances, this could lead a client failing to sign or encrypt certain elements as directed by the security policy, leading to information disclosure and insecure transmission of information.
Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2012-06-07 12:29:26 EDT
This has been corrected upstream in versions 2.4.8, 2.5.4, and 2.6.1:
