Description

Updated gnupg packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.2, 7, and 7.1. These updates address a potential vulnerability which could allow an attacker to compute a user's secret key.

By modifying an unsuspecting user's private keyring, an attacker can cause a user to generate incorrect signatures for data. If a user generates both a correct and an incorrect signature for the same data, the different signatures can be used to compute the user's secret key.
