Description Ville Skyttä 2006-10-15 16:48:44 EDT
From BouncyCastle 1.34 release notes:

Security Advisory If you are using RSA with a public exponent of three you 
must upgrade to this release if you want to avoid recent forgery attacks that 
have been described against specific implementations of the RSA signature 

java-1.4.2-gcj-compat in FC5 ship with BC 1.31 and may thus be affected.
Comment 1 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-11-29 10:46:20 EST
I've imported Bouncy Castle 1.34 into FC-5 update-testing:


and FC-6 updates-testing:

Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-12-13 16:44:35 EST
I pushed bouncycastle-1.34-2.fc6 and java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-
to final and built bouncycastle-1.34-2.fc7 in Rawhide.  Closing.
