Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 5 2006-1405: gnupg

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gnupg package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2006-1405 (gnupg).

GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is a GNU utility for encrypting data and
creating digital signatures. GnuPG has advanced key management
capabilities and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet
standard described in RFC2440. Since GnuPG doesn't use any patented
algorithm, it is not compatible with any version of PGP2 (PGP2.x uses
only IDEA for symmetric-key encryption, which is patented worldwide).

Update Information:

This update upgrades GnuPG to version 1.4.6, incorporating
fixes for a potential buffer overflow (CVE-2006-6169) and
referencing of a stack variable after it passes out of scope
(CVE-2006-6235).
