Description

A flaw was found in all python-ecdsa versions before 0.13.3, where it did not correctly verify whether signatures used DER encoding. Without this verification, a malformed signature could be accepted, making the signature malleable. Without proper verification, an attacker could use a malleable signature to create false transactions.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-python2-ecdsa
  • suse-upgrade-python3-ecdsa
