Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4974-1
June 02, 2021

lasso vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.04
- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS


Applications using Lasso could be made to allow unintended access.

Software Description:
- lasso: Liberty Alliance and SAML protocol Library


It was discovered that Lasso did not properly verify that all
assertions in a SAML response were properly signed. An attacker
could possibly use this to impersonate users or otherwise bypass
access controls.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 21.04:

  liblasso3                       2.6.1-2ubuntu0.1
  python3-lasso                   2.6.1-2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 20.10:
  liblasso-perl                   2.6.0-7ubuntu2.1
