Overview

org.apache.axis2:axis2 is a Web Services / SOAP / WSDL engine, the successor to Apache Axis SOAP stack.

Apache Axis2 allows remote attackers to forge messages and bypass authentication via a SAML assertion that lacks a Signature element, aka a "Signature exclusion attack," a different vulnerability than CVE-2012-4418.
