Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68200
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-970-1 (gnupg2)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-970-1 (gnupg2)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to gnupg2
announced via advisory USN-970-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that GPGSM in GnuPG2 did not correctly handle
certificates with a large number of Subject Alternate Names. If a user or
automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted
certificate, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute
arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
gpgsm 2.0.7-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
gpgsm 2.0.9-3.1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
gpgsm 2.0.12-0ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
gpgsm 2.0.14-1ubuntu1.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
