Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56427
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-264-1 (gnupg)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-264-1 (gnupg)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to gnupg
announced via advisory USN-264-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: gnupg

Tavis Ormandy discovered a flaw in gnupg's signature verification. In
some cases, certain invalid signature formats could cause gpg to
report a 'good signature' result for auxiliary unsigned data which was
prepended or appended to the checked message part.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1.2.4-4ubuntu2.3 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 1.2.5-3ubuntu5.3 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 1.4.1-1ubuntu1.2 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
