Submission + - OpenSSL fails to verify RSA signatures

Bitkid writes: "OpenSSL fails to recognize forged RSA signatures under certain circumstances. To be more specific, if the RSA exponent of the public key is 3 it is possible to construct a signature that will be accepted as genuine. The attack is due to an error in the implementation and is explained in more number-theoretic detail here."
