Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:059
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : gnupg
Date : March 8, 2007
Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0,
Multi Network Firewall 2.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

GnuPG prior to 1.4.7 and GPGME prior to 1.1.4, when run from the
command
line, did not visually distinguish signed and unsigned portions of
OpenPGP messages with multiple components. This could allow a remote
attacker to forge the contents of an email message without detection.

GnuPG 1.4.7 is being provided with this update and GPGME has been
patched on Mandriva 2007.0 to provide better visual notification on
these types of forgeries.
