Description Petr Pisar 2021-04-29 14:54:46 UTC
libtomcrypt-1.18.2-12.fc35 accepts non-well-formed RSA#1 signatures. See <> for a bug report and <> for a libtomcrypt fix merged to an upstream's develop branch. Please consider backporting the fix. Note that the develop branch is way to diffent from 1.18.2 code base.
