Description

Updated gnupg packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.x and 7.

When importing keys from public key servers, GnuPG will import private keys (also known as secret keys) in addition to public keys. If this happens, the user's web of trust becomes corrupted. Additionally, when used to check detached signatures, if the data file being checked contained clearsigned data, GnuPG would not warn the user if the detached signature was incorrect.

Solution(s)
