Version(s): 0.9.7j and prior versions, 0.9.8 - 0.9.8b
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in OpenSSL. A remote user may be able to forge certain digital signatures.

If an RSA key with exponent 3 is used, a remote user may be able to forge a PKCS #1 v1.5 signature for that key.

Software that uses PKCS #1 v1.5 may be affected. Software that uses OpenSSL to verify X.509 certificates may also be affected.

Daniel Bleichenbacher reported the type of attack that is possible against PKCS #1 v1.5 signatures.

Impact:   A remote user may be able to forge signatures (and certificates).
Solution:   OpenBSD has issued the following patches.
