Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57666
Category:Mandrake Local Security Checks
Title:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:221 (gnupg)
Summary:Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:221 (gnupg)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to gnupg
announced via advisory MDKSA-2006:221.

Buffer overflow in the ask_outfile_name function in openfile.c for
GnuPG (gpg) 1.4 and 2.0, when running interactively, might allow
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.

Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0,
Multi Network Firewall 2.0


Solution:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
