CVE-2006-4339 RSA signature forgery

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #205180 +++
Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an attack on PKCS #1 v1.5
signatures. Where an RSA key with exponent 3 is used it may be possible
for an attacker to forge a PKCS #1 v1.5 signature that would be incorrectly
verified by implementations that do not check for excess data in the RSA
exponentiation result of the signature.
The Google Security Team discovered that OpenSSL is vulnerable to this
attack. This issue affects applications that use OpenSSL to verify X.509
certificates as well as other uses of PKCS #1 v1.5. (CVE-2006-4339)
