Debian Security Advisory DSA 993-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
March 10th, 2006 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gnupg
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-0049

Tavis Ormandy noticed that gnupg, the GNU privacy guard - a free PGP
replacement, can be tricked to emit a "good signature" status message
when a valid signature is included which does not belong to the data
packet.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.1-1.sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.2.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
