Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-978-1 gnupg

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Tavis Ormandy noticed that gnupg, the GNU privacy guard - a free PGP
replacement, verifies external signatures of files successfully even
though they don't contain a signature at all.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.6-4woody4.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.1-1sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg package.
Please note that this security advisory has been superseeded by
DSA 993. Therefore, the
updated packages are no longer available from this page.
