Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:221: 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 MDKSA-2006:221 (gnupg).

Buffer overflow in the ask_outfile_name function in openfile.c for
GnuPG (gpg) 1.4 and 2.0, when running interactively, might permit
attackers to execute arbitrary code via messages that cause the
make_printable_string function to return a longer string than expected
while constructing a prompt.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
